Hallucinating man arrested for shooting at invisible clowns

ROBERTS, Wisconsin - An Arizona man visiting family in Wisconsin was placed under arrest earlier this month after admitting to firing shots at invisible clowns during a drug-included stupor.

Police were called July 9 to the home of the man’s mother in Roberts, Wisconsin, a small town across the border from the Twin Cities.

According to TwinCities.com , the website for the Pioneer Press, the 40-year-old man had fired several shotgun rounds inside his mother’s home by the time police arrived around 4 a.m.

With police surrounding the home, the man came to the door and was apparently yelling at the hallucinated clowns, the Press reported.

He went back inside and fired more shots in the home and came to the porch with the shotgun and a string of ammunition around his neck.

The man did not respond to officers’ commands, but when he slipped and fell, deputies were able to take him into custody, St. Croix County Sheriff Dennis Hillstead said.

On his way to the hospital, the man told medical crews he had taken a hallucinogenic drug and believed people dressed as clowns were attacking his mother’s home, that he had shot and killed several of them, and that his mother had been killed in the attack.

In reality, nobody was injured in the incident, though Hillstead said the man shot at his mother and her boyfriend as they were trying to flee the home in their vehicle.

LOL, must have been some clown print LSD blotter. :facepalm:
