Two 18-year-olds charged with dressing as clowns and terrorizing pedestrians

ROSEVILLE, Mich. — Two 18-year-old Michigan women took the crazed clown phenomenon to new lengths Thursday night after chasing and scaring two younger girls.

According to Roseville Police Chief James Berlin, at about 9 p.m. the two women jumped out of a car and started screaming and chasing two 14-year-old girls.

After the incident, the younger teens immediately ran to the nearest police station. When police went out to search for the suspects, they say they “observed two idiots dressed as clowns.”

Police took both women into custody. They told police they thought it was funny to go around terrorizing pedestrians.

According to WJBK, the judge called their acts of dressing up as clowns “outrageous,” and set a $10,000 bond for each suspect. If they fail to post bond on the Disorderly Conduct Misdemeanor, they could face up to 90 days in jail and/or a $500 fine.
