California police arrested a 61-year-old man for hitchhiking. In a clown outfit. Carrying a machete.
On Facebook, someone asked what the clown was doing.
“Wish we knew,” the police department replied. “Right now, as far as we know, he was standing there looking at traffic.” ...
It's not a repeat of the Great Clown Panic of 2016 yet, but "police are also advising other clowns to stay away from the highway."
