Tampa man arrested for wearing clown mask, wig

The Associated Press

TAMPA, Fla. - A Tampa man faces charges after a deputy spotted him walking in a clown mask. According to jail records, the man was arrested Tuesday and charged with wearing a mask or hood on a public road over the age of 16 and resisting arrest without violence. The man, who turned 19 on Wednesday, has been released from Hillsborough County Jail on $750 bond.

The St. Petersburg Times reported that a deputy saw the man wearing a clown mask and bright wig as he walked down a street with two other people. The group fled when deputies tried to question them, but were later located.

Unbelievable, that in the Land of the Free and Home of the Brave, it is against the law to wear a clown mask walking down the street.

I guess the cops have absolutly reined in violent crime and stuff and now need to go after this?
