A man accused of drunkenly strolling down a road in Maine wearing a black-hooded sweatshirt and a clown mask and brandishing a machete taped to his amputated arm has been arrested.
Maine State Police told WCSH-TV that 31-year-old Corey Berry, of Hollis, was arrested Tuesday and charged with criminal threatening. He was released from York County Jail after posting $200 bail.
Police say Berry was first spotted in Hollis around 6pm on Tuesday, but then fled into the woods and authorities had a hard time tracking him down.
He was finally taken into custody after re-emerging in Waterboro an hour later.
Police say Berry was intoxicated but cooperative. He told officers that he was copying previous clown sightings as a prank.
They also realized that the machete he was carrying was duct-taped to his arm, which was amputated.
A phone number for Berry couldn’t be found Wednesday, and it wasn’t known if he has a lawyer who could comment on his behalf.
