MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – More creepy clowns are being reported in Minnesota.
Police in Blaine say that a resident in the Quail Creek area had a clown ring their doorbell Tuesday after dark.
Later that night, another resident in the city reported that four people dressed in clown jumpsuits were dancing in their yard.
While police say there is no law against dressing up as a clown, one can be charged with disorderly conduct for causing fear.
Also on Tuesday, authorities in Shakopee, Anoka County and Farmington were investigating clown sightings and clown-related posts on social media.
Across the country, creepy clowns are being seen from Arizona to Maine.
While authorities say the public, in most cases, has no reason to be afraid, some people have been charged with making threats.
