    Lurking clown arrested in Kentucky woods near apartments

    [​IMG]

    Kentucky police have arrested a man dressed as a clown lurking in a wooded area amid a wave of clown reports in at least six US states.

    Jonathan Martin, 20, was charged with wearing a mask in a public place and disorderly conduct in Middlesboro.

    He was found at about 0100 EST (0600 GMT) on Friday in "full clown costume" and mask crouching among trees by an apartment complex, according to police.

    Recent reports of clowns trying to lure children into woods have sparked alarm.

    Police have warned individuals against dressing up in clown costumes, adding it could lead to criminal charges.

    "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,said in a statement 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."

    Why are clowns scary?

    Alleged clown encounters have been reported in recent weeks in North Carolina, South Carolina, Alabama, Georgia and Kentucky.

    But the recent wave of creepy clown sightings has also led to a string of false reports to both police and on social media.

    Police in Annapolis, Maryland, recently found reports of students being scared by clowns on the way to school to be untrue.

    A 24-year-old man was charged with making false reports in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, after he told police a clown knocked on his window.

    Meanwhile, an 11-year-old girl was arrested in Athens, Georgia, for bringing a knife to school because she was scared by social media reports that clowns were attacking children.

    Mr Martin's arrest comes as Kentucky residents have reported sightings of a clown matching the description of his costume.

    A photo posted on Facebook on Wednesday showed a clown in Waco, Kentucky, dressed in a similar black-and-white costume.

    So dressing up like a scary clown is the same as yelling fire in a crowded theater? Hmmm.....

    Halloween blows. My dogs go nuts with the doorbell ringing all night, and apart from the really cute little kids, no one gets dressed up anymore--they just show up at your house looking for free candy. Fuck that.

    it's 95% funny and retarded but there's a 5% freedom issue here too.



    "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,said in a statement 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.

    That's really subjective and possibly not even true.

    Also, annoying thread hijack - pro sports players have the right to advocate murdering the police (Crowell from the Browns) but some redneck doesn't have the right to wear a funny outfit at night? Seems crazy to me.

    Well, they can be. But they're mostly loves.

    They can't help the way they're wired. They distrust strangers ringing the bell; can't blame them for that.

    They don't even say "Trick or Treat" half the time either.

    We love Halloween, it's my wife's and my favorite holiday, christmas can suck my balls.

    Plus halloween is the only day out of the year where it's cool to dress your dogs up and not be one of "those people", the other 364 days I will snicker behind your back.
