ROSEVILLE, Mich. — Two 18-year-old Michigan women took the crazed clown phenomenon to new lengths on Thursday night after chasing and scaring two teenage girls.

According to Roseville Police Chief James Berlin, the two women jumped out of a car and chased two 14-year-old girls on Thursday. After the incident, the teens ran to the nearest police station where they were “in hysterics,” police said.

When officers went out to search for the suspects, they “observed two idiots dressed as clowns.” Chief Berlin also referred to the suspects as “morons” in a news release.

Police took both women into custody. The suspects told police they thought it was funny to go around terrorizing pedestrians.

According to WJBK, the judge called their acts of dressing up as clowns “outrageous,” and set a $10,000 bond for each suspect. If they fail to post bond on the Disorderly Conduct Misdemeanor, they could face up to 90 days in jail and/or a $500 fine.

    90 days isn’t nearly enough. Give them a year to figure out the seriousness of their “game” and they might be less apt to do it again.

      The police, prosecutors, and judges don’t pick the max time for an offense. That’s written in the law. Disorderly conduct is only a 90 day misdemeanor which makes the max amount of time spent in jail 90 days.

    Although what they did was wrong $10,000 bond on a 90 day misdemeanor is a little excessive. I get it, they are trying to make an example of these two to curb the recent creepy clown phenomenon, but $10,000 on a disorderly conduct charge? Half the time that’s all I see get put on Flee & Elude suspects.(which is a felony)
