This creepy clown trend has been taking the country by storm and it’s getting old.
People are dressing up as clowns and chasing people down the streets, even while carrying weapons. This clown had a knife!
This is no joke. The Augusta County Sheriff’s Department reminds you:
I would like to make the citizens of Augusta County aware of the VA Code Section 18.2-422 which prohibits a person over 16 years of age from wearing a mask, hood, or other device to cover or conceal the identity of the wearer. A violation of this code section is a Class 6 felony. A Class 6 felony is punishable by one to five years of incarceration and a fine of not more than $2500. Either or both may apply if convicted of this offense.
Bottom line, don’t be stupid. Have fun this Halloween. Don’t dress up as a clown.
