A Wisconsin couple made the decision to leave their 4-year-old at home while taking part in the killer crown craze that has swept across the United States and Britain.
Police in Menasha, Wisconsin released the dash cam video of two clowns that were reported to have been chasing vehicles during the early hours of the morning. The video footage from the police dash cam of the two creepy clowns taking part in the killer crown craze can be viewed below.
Police pulled up to two men who were mysteriously and creepily standing at the side of the road dressed in clown costumes. According to Mirror, the men were 29- and 20-years-old. The officers spoke to the men dressed in creepy clown costumes but did not arrest them.
The older man, along with his 26-year-old wife (who was the driver for the two clowns), were arrested when the Menasha, Wisconsin police discovered the couple had left their 4-year-old home alone to participate in the creepy clown crazy and terrorize their neighborhood.
This creepy killer crown craze has been a problem all summer. The craze first started at an apartment complex in South Carolina when the children of residents at the apartments started telling their parents about creepy clowns lurking in the woods who were offering the children money and/or candy if they came into the woods with them.
Most parents at the South Carolina apartment complex just assumed their children were imagining the clowns in the woods. Things changed, however, when parents started to see the creepy killer clowns lurking in the woods. It didn’t take long for the management of the apartments to send out letters warning the residents of the creepy clown craze and asking them to keep an extra eye on their children.
