Gunfire ensues when dad wears clown mask and chases daughter

A man was arrested Saturday evening after chasing his frightened daughter while wearing a clown mask, police in Boardman said.

Vernon Barrett Jr., from Boardman, Ohio, told police that he made a decision to chase his terrified girl around the neighborhood while wearing a clown mask Saturday night because she had been behaving badly, according to WKBN27.

Boardman police say the girl first jumped into a stranger's vehicle, then ran into a stranger's apartment while screaming that a clown was chasing her Saturday night, reports CBS Youngstown, Ohio affiliate WKBN-TV.

Dion Santiago, a man at the apartment, fired a gunshot into his yard, but didn't hit Barrett, who was still wearing clown mask, police said.
