Don't Take the Clown!

Creepy Clown, Patricia Ingalls, Arrested
No, this is not a reference to Heath Ledger's portrayal of The Joker in "The Dark Knight". The creepy specter in the photo above is Patricia Ingalls.

Patricia Ingalls, Professional Clown, was recently arrested at an event while in full clown regalia and witnessed by several children. Ingalls was arrested under the charges of drunk driving and leaving the scene of an accident. According to police, her blood alchohol level was .252, which is more than three times the legal limit.

According to Ingalls, as she was led away in haccuffs, the children grabbed on to her saying, "Don't take the Clown!"

Don't take the clown. In essence, isn't this what we're all saying? Okay, maybe not, but it is a funny story. Hell, what that involves a clown isn't funny? She's wearing grease paint in her mugshot for crissake.

Here is the story which includes a video interview of Ingalls as she describes the children calling out "don't take the clown."
