Over the last year or so we’ve seen this strange phenomena, creepy folks lurking in random places, sending shivers down the spines of us normal folk. But no, we’re not talking about you Pokemon Go players, we’re talking about these weird and mysterious clowns that are popping up all over the place!
Kentucky has seen some recent creeper clown activity, but the police force are grinding away on the beat, looking to bring this eerie trend to an abrupt end.
Last night, police arrested 20-year old, Jonathan Martin, who, at the time was wearing a full-on clown getup, mask and all. It’s actually a pretty creepy looking suit, and I’m not ashamed to admit that!
Martin was charged with wearing a mask in a public place (I had no idea that was against the law, though I can see why it is, given current affairs) and disorderly conduct in Middlesboro.
According to BBC he was found at about 0100 EST (0600 GMT) on Friday in “full clown costume” and mask crouching among trees by an apartment complex.
“Dressing as a clown and driving, walking or standing in public can create a dangerous situation for you and others,” police in nearby Barbourville, Kentucky, stated online.
“While dressing up is not, in and of itself against the law, doing so in public and thereby creating an unnecessary sense of alarm is illegal.”
Word to the unwise – put your freakish clown fetish to bed before you land yourself behind bars!
