Tampa police have decided to finally crack down on one of the biggest threats to our society, clowns and the people who dress like them
. Tuesday afternoon, deputies observed Matthew David Lopez, who was wearing a clown mask with a bright red-and-orange wig, and a couple other Bozos walking down the street. Realizing the seriousness of the situation, officers arrested Lopez on charges of wearing a mask or hood on a public road after the age of 16 and resisting arrest without violence. He was released on $750 bail and a promise to perform at no fewer than two birthday parties.
