Straight out of a Keystone Cops movie:

This news article is surely mis-reported and confused. It could only have taken place in Phoenix, AZ, during one of Sheriff Joe's alien crime sweeps! Exactly who was wearing the clown mask? Is walking in clown-shoes illegal too? I believe that the circus has arrived.

Sad day for a clown: Tampa man jailed for wearing illegal mask The image “” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors. Illegal Face Caught Walking!

TAMPA — Charged with wearing a clown mask on a public road, an 18-year-old Tampa man was jailed Tuesday afternoon.

Deputies say Matthew David Lopez, of 7003 Ponderosa Drive, was seen with two other people walking south on N 58th Street, just north of E Fowler Avenue. What caught a deputy's attention was Lopez's masked face with a bright red-and-orange wig, according to an arrest affidavit.

The deputy followed the group in an unmarked car as the group walked west through a slightly wooded path behind several business offices.

A marked Temple Terrace Police cruiser showed up soon after, and the group ran away before deputies could question them.

They were found near N 58th Street and E 122nd Avenue.

Lopez was taken to the Hillsborough County Jail on charges of wearing a mask or hood on a public road after the age of 16 years old and resisting arrest without violence.

He was released on $750 bail.

  1. HOORAY! Zero tolerance for clown masks! Sheriff Joe must have seen the great film Killer Klowns From Outer Space. "Clown Shoes Joe" just loves (illegal) aliens.
    Wearing his clown-shoes, he could make his own cheap outer space thriller: Keystone Cops vs. Maricopa County Supervisors and Aliens - The Movie
