If you decided you wanted to be a creepy clown for Halloween beware. Some Florida resident plan on taking some extra precautions while out trick-or-treating with their children on Monday amid reports of creepy clowns sightings.
As reported by Fox News, parents across the state are worried about creepy clowns, some are even bringing bats because they do not have a gun.
Sheriff Wayne Ivey noted that it’s a second-degree misdemeanor to conceal your identity with the intent to intimidate or harass anyone while “being upon any lane, walk, alley, street, road, highway, or other public way.” Ivey also added that deputies will be looking out for any foul play.
Brevard County authorities are worried clown fears could endanger someone who is dressing up as a clown for a joke. Palm Bay Police Lt. Mike Banish said:
The problem is that someone dressed like a clown could scare someone and there’s a possibility, a possibility you could end up with someone getting shot. A person could think that they’re about to get robbed.
The nation’s fear of clowns heightened toward the end of the summer after reports of clowns trying to lure children into the woods. Since then there has been a number of clown sightings across the United States.
