A disturbing new trend has been sweeping the nation: people dressing as creepy clowns and scaring people. Unfortunately, that trend has made it's way to Michigan.

Most of the "creepy clown" incidents have just involved people dressed as very scary clowns standing randomly out in the open in the attempts to scare people. But some of the incidents have gone past that, with those dressed as the creepy clowns chasing people down and attacking them.

So far, creepy clowns have been sighted in a few different spots throughout Michigan.

  • Big Rapids
  • Cadillac
  • Port Huron
  • Muskegon
  • Lapeer

Check out the video below from FOX 2 to hear more about these unsettling instances. Oh, and just a heads up to any clowns (or people in general) trying to scare me... you're gonna get punched in the throat. And that's probably the reaction you'll get from most people when you scare them wearing a creepy clown costume, just sayin'.
