Just in time for Halloween, as if the barage of reports about Ebola and beheading video propaganda from ISIS isn’t enough, police in a California town are getting an increased amount of calls from people reporting sinister clowns in the area.
KTLA and the LA Times report clowns “standing in public holding machetes and baseball bats” are terrorizing the town of Bakersfield, reports WGNtv.com.
A teen was arrested for taking a prank too far after police say he dressed as a clown and chased other teens.
The prankster allegedly admitted to copying the likeness of the “Wasco Clown.”
That clown is part of a husband and wife art project, whose photos have gone viral on social media. (A similar image went viral around the world in the form of the Northampton clown in Britain.)
