Clown warning issued in Middle Tennessee
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WZTV) - Apparently, Tennesseans need to be on high alert for clowns.
A warning was given by the Tennessee Department of Safety and the Tennessee Highway Patrol (THP) on Saturday. The agencies took to Twitter posting, "Watch for clowns in your area. They could be child predators seeking kids" and "Watch for clowns trying to lure children into the woods. They are possibly predators."
Several recent clown sightings have left many communities in the Southeast in fear.
It is unclear at this time what specifically led to the warning in Tennessee.
