Start Your Day With This Video of a Cop Fighting a Clown

The guy who taped it for all of us to enjoy sounds like a real gem, too.

Bystander Mitch Cooper pulled out his cell phone and recorded the bizarre brawl on video.

“What's going through my head is a cop beating up a clown. How can I not capture this video and show it to all my friends?” So I had to  whip out my phone and hit on video.”

The unidentified man, dressed as a clown, is reportedly a local activist often spotted outside government buildings. Police said they received several complaints that the clown was chasing cars with a squirt gun. But when police arrived, the clown resisted arrest.

Cooper added: “The officer reached for him, and then all of a sudden, the next thing you know, they're on the ground, tussling and rolling around. The officer started punching him, and then another officer showed up, and it looked like they were about to arrest him.”

“It was pretty funny. The clown was resisting, so the cop needed to do what he needed to do to make sure he was safe. It was funny to witness, probably not so fun for the clown, but as a spectator, it was pretty entertaining.”

Kramer would have approved of the officer’s actions. Do you?
