Police are investigating video that has gone viral on the internet of a clown wearing a hospital gown hanging onto the back of a city bus in Detroit.
The video featuring a clown with pink hair hanging onto the back of a Detroit Department of Transportation bus was uploaded to social media on Saturday by a user named Detwan Hall. Another video on Hall’s page appeared to show the same clown looking out of a car’s back seat.
“This n**** hanging on the back of the bus,” the man videotaping the incident says. “It’s a f****** clown! Get the f*** out of here!”
“The safety of our riders is DDOT’s number one priority, and that is why we have significantly increased our Transit Police presence and have installed surveillance cameras inside and outside of all of our DDOT coaches,” the agency told Detroit’s WDIV. “We have forwarded the video to the Detroit Police Department for review.”
The Detroit Police Department criminal investigations bureau is now looking into the video.
Officer Jennifer Moreno said what the clown did could warrant a civil infraction for riding on the back of a moving vehicle, according to The Detroit Free Press.
This is just one of the latest clown sightings that have been popping up all over the country as well as some parts of the world.
