MANDEVILLE - Police in Mandeville have accused two teenagers of trying to scare people while wearing a clown mask.
An arrest report shows 18-year-old Ryan Bailey of Mandeville and a 16-year-old were given a summons Wednesday for wearing prohibited masks in public places.
The report shows officers received a call about scary clowns in a car frightening people. According to the report, one clown would get out of the passenger side of the car and try to scare people.
