Cops plan to charge dad in scary clown mask who followed bus

AUBURN, Mass. (AP) — Police in Massachusetts say they plan to charge a father who wore a scary clown mask and followed his child's school bus.

Auburn police say some middle-school-age children were so scared that they hid under a backyard deck.

Police say the man followed the bus Tuesday. They posted a picture on their Facebook page Thursday saying they intended to seek charges of disorderly conduct and disturbing the peace. Because the charges have not been formally filed, the man's name was not made public.

Police wrote on Facebook: "We are hopeful that others will learn from this incident and not repeat these types of behaviors."

Police nationwide have been dealing with reports of clown sightings and hoaxes involving threats of violence by clowns.
