Victimless Crime File: Shotgun Wielding Man Believed Clowns Were Attacking Home in Wisconsin

Straight Clown Love

As it turns out the man was high so there were no clowns, but plenty of mayhem:

Police responded early Friday to a call of shots fired at a home in Roberts and found a man apparently hallucinating an attack by clowns.

The 40-year-old man, armed with a shotgun, had fired several shots in his mother’s home. It also appeared that he fired a shot at his mother and visiting father as they fled from the home in a vehicle, said St. Croix County Sheriff Dennis Hillstead.

“Pellets probably hit their windshield,” Hillstead said.

Police arrived about 4 a.m. and surrounded the home. The man came to the door at one point and was “yelling at what he could see in the yard, but there was nothing there,” Hillstead said.

The man went back into the home and fired more rounds, Hillstead said. In total, about 22 shotgun rounds were fired into the walls and ceiling of the home.

The man then went to the porch with the shotgun in hand and a bag of ammunition around his neck. He did not respond to police commands, but after the man slipped and fell, deputies were able to take him into custody, Hillstead said.

While being taken to a hospital for examination, the man indicated he had taken a hallucinogenic drug. He said he believed that people dressed as clowns were attacking his mother’s home and that he had shot and killed a number of them, Hillstead said. He also said he had shot dogs that were attacking him and that his mother had been shot and killed.

“He was … not in touch with reality,” Hillstead said.

Yeah, that’ll happen when you’re tripping. Is it just me or is there something especially sad about a 40-year-old man getting high alone in his mother’s house?

Wisconsin, I should point out, is home to a large Juggalo population. Did he have a bad experience earlier in the day with some clown painted passerbys or is he a “hater” as the Juggalos say? Clearly he isn’t “down with the clown” as they say.

Since no one was hurt it looks like he’ll be in a psych ward until he’s clean then he’ll get probation or a fine. So Juggalos be warned, there’s a clown killer on the loose!

Man, if only drugs were legal this wouldn’t have happened, right guys?

    Hero? No. Just a man doing what’s right, in a world gone wrong.

    What’s that a threat? From an anonymous Juggalo? I wish you could hear me laughing.

    I am not in the business of having people like you give advice on what’s wise. In typical classless Juggalo fashion you’re trying to make a thinly veiled threat, over the Internet of course, because what? The skank you’re friends with on some forum might let you catch some crabs because you “stood up” for her? That’s does not fly here.

    Why don’t you spread some “wisdom” here and tell me exactly what will happen when I don’t pull this picture down? I’m guessing two things – jack and shit.

    Very funny. That made my day. Thanks Rob. It’s been a month and no response from ‘no worry’. Their parents probably suspended their internet privileges for being d-bags and they’re too moronic to get a library card to take advantage of the free internet service.
