They say “less is more,” and that might even apply to the creep factor of clown makeup.
The proof is in this arrest photo of a man who allegedly trespassed on a gas station’s property while carrying a hatchet.
Deputies in Union County, North Carolina, arrested Travis Quenton Pressley Sunday evening after witnesses reported a man with clown makeup, a ski cap and dark clothing was walking around the store, according to WCNC.com.
The 20-year-old suspect was gone by the time deputies arrived, but he was found a short time later.
It helped that he had clown makeup smeared on his face.
Pressley was charged with second-degree trespassing, carrying a concealed weapon, possession of marijuana up to one-half of an ounce, and possession of drug paraphernalia.
He has since been released from the Union County Jail.
