A father has been charged with child endangering and inducing panic after he chased his six-year-old daughter while wearing a clown mask in an attempt to discipline the child.

The incident took place in Boardman Township, Ohio, on Saturday night, the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

The child was reportedly so terrified she first jumped into a stranger’s car and later went into another stranger’s apartment to escape from her father.

Police told the newspaper that a man in the apartment building came outside during the commotion and fired a gunshot into the ground. That man has been charged with using weapons while intoxicated, the AP reports.

The father reportedly told police he donned the clown mask to scare his daughter in an effort to discipline her for apparent bad behavior, instead of spanking her.

RT.com has reached out to the police for comment.

Last year saw a bizarre ‘killer clown’ craze sweep across the US, and then around the world, as creepy clowns were photographed wandering the streets at night and were rumored to be attacking people.

False alarms prompted by the reports led to police warning against would-be jokers dressing as clowns.

The phenomenon has re-emerged in recent weeks with several reports of people dressed as clowns acting in a menacing manner.

Media commentators in Australia, which has seen several clown-related incidents recently, have speculated that the resurfacing of the trend has been caused by the release of the horror movie ‘It’. The film features a clown named Pennywise who kidnaps children and is based on a Stephen King novel of the same name.

    somebody should have punched in in the face!!

    • And then should have spent the requisite sentence for battery incarcerated.

  • Enough is enough

    It doesn’t surprise me at all. I had to move to Ohio a few years ago for work. A big number of people I come across in that area are bigger morons than this loser. Company’s have a hard time finding employees because no one can pass a drug test or stay sober long enough to come to work.

      Tell me – why should a person have to submit to an unlawful and invasive search of their bodily fluids if they want to be productive?

      Shouldn’t a person’s job be predicated on the quality of their work instead of the contents of their urine?

      • Enough is enough

        Your right. But if you can’t stop long enough to be straight for work. I would think that would be a problem.

        • ReverendDraco✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵃᶜᶜᵒᵘᶰᵗ

          If a person’s job performance is satisfactory, why does it matter?

          How is it anyone elsess concern what a guy does on his own time?

          If an employer can dictate what a guy does on his own time, then it’s not his time but their time and they should have to pay him for it – including overtime.

          • Enough is enough

            I get what your saying. It’s an invasion of privacy. But. Reality is no company is going to hire someone that’s high or drunk all the time. I say stop collecting welfare moderate your vice get a job.

          • ReverendDraco✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵃᶜᶜᵒᵘᶰᵗ

            Whatever happened to innocent until proven guilty?

            The sad thing is, employers don’t even know what an insult it is to them, as well as the employees.

            “Wait – you want to be productive instead of going on the dole, and you want to work for us? You must be high!”

            I say, mind your own fucking business. If a guy gets off work and goes home and smokes a joint, none of anyone else’s fucking business, full stop.

          • Enough is enough

            The blame falls to the corrupt insurance companies.

          • Which insurance companies aren’t corrupt?

          • ReverendDraco✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵃᶜᶜᵒᵘᶰᵗ

            And corrupt government.

          • The government is largely composed of people so impaired by low IQ or other productivity killers that no one else would hire them. What difference does it make what causes the impairment if it doesn’t prevent the job from being done safely and efficiently?

          • Speaking to that situation, I got bored waiting for my truck to be unloaded one day and did a little bit of paperwork. I took a logbook and following the hours of service rules for the time, I ran the maximum legal driving time until it repeated. I then multiplied the number of hours driven by 55, and divided the gross pay by the number of hours engaged on the vehicle. I came up with a hourly wage of $4.14. Perhaps all truck drivers should be made eligible for the federal minimum wage for every hour they are on the truck, regardless of what it is doing. It would be, at least, a strong incentive to minimize things that waste the driver’s time.

        • How is being impaired by any other cause less heinous than being “impaired” by a illicit substance, especially when the evidence of impairment is detectable long after the impairment is gone?

      • Shouldn’t a person’s job be predicated on their profitability to the employer?
        Having been fired from my last trucking job because I had the temerity to be driving a truck that broke down repetitively because of its owner’s negligent maintenance, the quality of the driver far exceeded the quality of the driven.

        • ReverendDraco✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵃᶜᶜᵒᵘᶰᵗ

          A person’s job performance is related to profitability – minimum wage aside.

          • His or her retention is more a function of the scruples of the employer. In the case of trucking, many employers will get rid of a driver that does his job with respect to the pre-trip inspection report. I have more first hand experience than I care to write a book about.

          • ReverendDraco✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵃᶜᶜᵒᵘᶰᵗ

            We were talking about how things would work in a sane world, weren’t we?

          • Which is why everything we could have said has been as theoretical as the sanity of the world.

          • ReverendDraco✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵃᶜᶜᵒᵘᶰᵗ

            Of course.

  • The question is, why are you? Are you that desperate to disparage someone and practice your ad hominem attacks? Or, are you trying to get into the troll union?

  • ReverendDraco✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵃᶜᶜᵒᵘᶰᵗ

    You are obviously projecting.

    • With a burned out light source:-)

      • ReverendDraco✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵃᶜᶜᵒᵘᶰᵗ

        And a cracked lens.

        • It must have been recalled, because Disq a$$ has disappeared off of Disqus, like several spammers who have disappeared when I go to block them. Disqus should remove all content from any user that leaves after less than a day’s existence.

          • ReverendDraco✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵃᶜᶜᵒᵘᶰᵗ

            I agree.
