OSSINING, N.Y. -- The "Creepy Clown" craze has arrived in Ossining. Sort of.
The Ossining Police Department reports it received a call Wednesday about a motorist wearing a clown mask "driving suspiciously" on Main Street.
Two officers quickly located the vehicle and the man in the clown mask. They report that he did not have any weapons and there was no indication of a specific malicious intent, he did have a police radio in his center console, which is illegal.
The motorist, whom police did not identify, was given and appearance ticket to the Town of Ossining Justice Court for having the radio in his car and sent on his way.
