Man in Creepy Clown Mask With Machete Taped to Amputated Arm Gets Arrested: Cops
Corey Berry was charged with criminal threatening for allegedly creeping around woods wearing a clown mask and wielding a machete.
Perhaps he read too much Stephen King and watched too many creepy clown YouTube videos.
A Maine man in a macabre clown mask with a machete duct-taped to his amputated arm was arrested after he was seen running in and out of a wooded area, authorities said.
Corey Berry was arrested and charged with criminal threatening after Maine State Police officers said they tracked him running through the trees in Waterboro.
The 31-year-old appeared to be inebriated, police said, and told cops he was pulling a prank by imitating eerie clown sightings that caused uproar across the country late last year.
A series of scary-looking clown appearances in October prompted police to increase their community presence after parents complained their children were traumatized by the freaky phantoms.
In response, Target removed clown masks from its offering of Halloween costumes and McDonald’s cut back the public appearances of Ronald McDonald, its red-haired clown mascot.
Berry was released after posting $200 bail, police said.
