A naked clown caused quite a stir when he allegedly hopped into a tractor-trailer, grabbed the male driver and asked him if he wanted to have sex. James Vosolo, 46, was arrested at a rest stop in Massachusetts earlier this week. The professional clown was not smiling when he was arraigned on a host of criminal charges.
Until recently, Vosolo was working as a clown for Total Entertainment, an party event business located near Danvers, according to Salem News. As a result of the alleged naked clown incident, the Massachusetts man was charged with assault and battery, indecent exposure, disorderly conduct, and failure to stop for police officers.
The semi-truck driver was apparently not interested in taking up the nude clown’s offer for sex. The driver reportedly pretended he desires what the stranger was offering so he could call police officers while Vosolo waited to meet him, according to the New York Daily News.
When the suspect drove away from the road side rest, a Massachusetts State Trooper was soon right behind him in pursuit. Vosolo allegedly threw what officers believed were drugs out his car window before finally pulling over. When state troopers reached the vehicle, the professional clown was clad in only thong underwear.
A search of the suspect’s vehicle revealed multiple sex toys and Halloween masks. A Total Entertainment representative told the Salem News that the man arrested on indecent exposure charges no longer worked for the company. When asked if Vosolo had worked with children when he was an employee, Total Entertainment had no comment.
