Pair of 18-year-old 'morons' charged with dressing like clowns, terrorizing teens

(WWBT) -

Two 18-year-old Michigan women took the creepy clown phenomenon to a new level Thursday night after allegedly chasing and scaring two teenage girls and the city’s police chief had some choice words for the pair.

In a report shared by NBC affiliate KFOR, Roseville Police Chief James Berlin told media that the two women jumped out of a car and chased two 14-year-old girls Thursday, causing the girls to run to the nearest police station “in hysterics.”

As officers searched for the suspects, Berlin said authorities “observed two idiots dressed as clowns.” The chief also referred to the two women as “morons” in a news release obtained by WZZM.

Police nabbed both women a short time later, allegedly telling police they thought it was funny to run around terrorizing pedestrians.

According to WJBK, the judge called the pair’s act of dressing up as clowns “outrageous,” and set a $10,000 bond for both women.

If they fail to post bond on the misdemeanor disorderly conduct charge, they both could face up to 90 days behind bars and/or a $500 fine.
