The video begins with an enactment of an officer responding to a woman who reports a suspicious person who “popped out of the woods and scared my daughter half to death,” then “offered her something to go into the woods with him.”
The officer pulls up to the wooded area where he finds a creepy clown that fits the reported description.
“What are you going to do about it, tough guy,” the creepy clown says, approaching the officer.
The clown becomes clearly outnumbered after a clown car-style exit of officers from the cruiser.
“If you want to act like a clown, we have no problem treating you like a clown,” Dartmouth Police Detective Kyle Costa says.
Costa warned that, depending on the circumstance, clowns could get arrested for disturbing the peace, trespassing, or enticing a child.
