A creepy clown, as depicted in a nationwide rash of such sightings of these makeup-clad demons purportedly luring kids into wooded areas, was taken into custody by Kentucky police Friday.
20-year-old Jonathan Martinâ€™s arrest comes amid reports of suspicious clowns in at least six other states.
Mr. Martin had been seen crouched next to a wooded area near an apartment complex in the full clown get-up.
When an officer stopped, Martin started running.
He was charged with disorderly conduct and wearing a mask in public.
