Bloomington Teen’s Clown Post Leads To Arrest

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Bloomington police say they arrested a 13-year-old boy after he posted what they’re calling implied violence against Valleyview Middle School.

Police learned that the boy posted a message copied from the “Jeff the Clown” Instagram account onto his Facebook page.

Police say the boy later admitted to making the clown account himself and writing the text.

    ” Police add the post appears related to the current social media trend involving photos or videos of clowns.”
    Hillary says if the school is attacked by radical Muslim terrorists it because of a clown video.
