Oklahoma Man in Clown Makeup Arrested After Hit and Run

This insane clown is Andrew Davis, 20, who was arrested in this makeup after allegedly running down a man with his car and then dragging him 100 feet. He was arrested after fleeing the scene.

Amazingly, the victim survived.

Davis insists that the victim punched him and that he was merely trying to get away from him.

Davis is now charged with felony counts of assault with a deadly weapon and hit-and-run.

This is why clowns are so darn scary.

Defense counsel may want to start working on a motion in limine on the mug shot.

  1. Perhaps it’s not so complicated. Maybe he just passed out at Baker’s Square and his face landed in his French Silk pie.

  2. Kay, Clowning is surprisingly serious business. I had a work-friend that became a professional clown. He went to an accredited clown school, became accredited with the national organization etc. The make-up rules were interesting for professional clowns, your make-up had to be appropriate to your clown type (as did your act), and your clown character and make-up scheme was registered.

    You couldn’t use anyone else’s’ make-up scheme and they couldn’t use yours. Your character kept the same make-up: you could retire the character and make-up scheme and develop a new one but your character and make-up was your brand. It was interesting to hear him talk about it, I had no idea it was such a ‘serious’ business.

  3. Tomdarch, re Juggalos:

    “It’s famous for the line, “F**king magnets, how do they work?!?”

    Lol, is Rush Limbaugh a Juggalo: ‘F**king tides, how do they work?’


    “Their point is that they don’t actually want to understand the mysteries of the universe, they just want to gaze in awe at God’s miraculous, beautiful creation.”

    I went through a phase like that. Pharmaceuticals were involved. A sense of awe is a terrible thing to waste. 🙂

  4. Tom,

    I prefer to pretend ICP doesn’t exist. Thanks for shattering my carefully crafted delusion.

  5. Seriously – only one person here is familiar with the Insane Clown Posse and their fans, the self-titled “Juggalos”?!? I’m no expert, but the black and white clown makeup is pretty characteristic of their style (as is rampant, um, stupidity is too soft a term… brain-deadness?)

    I don’t know how to post youtube videos in-line here, so here’s the link to the promo video for the annual “Gathering of the Juggalos” festival. (If I’m right about this guy being a fan of the band, he was probably still trying to find his way to the 2009 event when he hit this poor person.)


    Yes, it’s 17 minutes long, but keep watching – it’s hysterical. (And, to some degree, the producers of the video are in on the joke, but it’s not entirely self-mocking)

    Insane Clown Posse and their fans are simultaneously:
    1) The current incarnation of the downfall of western civilization (in fact, if ObL saw videos of Juggalos across America, he would have exclaimed, “Wow. My work is done. America has truly imploded.”)
    2) Actually not anything too horrible. The band promotes a very innocent “Awe” based form or Christianity (which is in total contrast to the horror movie (as in Saw or Hostel) inspired lyrics of most of their songs) Outside of their own subculture, they are best known for their song “Miracles” (Search youtube for “ICP Miracles”) It’s famous for the line, “F**king magnets, how do they work?!?” Their point is that they don’t actually want to understand the mysteries of the universe, they just want to gaze in awe at God’s miraculous, beautiful creation. And then watch movies like A Nightmare on Elm Street and write rap songs based on those graphic images.

  6. Regular clowns wear special greasy makeup that stays on when they sweat. Usually it includes bright red. This man looks like he tried to disguise himself so that he could commit a crime and that he didn’t plan it very well.

  7. Is this the John Wayne Gayce Drivers Training Academy….

  8. Nope, not KISS, its ICP, Insane Clown Posse. Their fans are known as Juggalos. Sometimes the jokes just write themselves.

  9. He seems to have undergone a make-up removal over his left eye that looks to be about the size of a cop’s fist- or the fist of the guy he claimed punched him before the joy ride. That, and the partially closed eye give his story some credibility. As to the make-up, maybe he was going to a meeting of the Kiss Fan Club. Maybe I should be his lawyer. Does it pay well?

  10. There are some stories you simply cannot invent because no one would believe it.

    The alibi reminds me of an incident here. About two o’clock one morning, a local officer spotted a car going about ten miles per hour and driving erratically. He fell in behind the car keeping it in sight. Driver got faster and faster, eventually running out of street on a dead end. With nowhere to turn, he crashes into a brick building. The officer stops behind him and went to see if he were injured. The very intoxicated guy behind the wheel staggered out, exclaiming, “I wasn’t the one driving officer. The driver jumped out and ran off.”

  11. mespo,

    Thanks for the confirmation. I wanted to make sure this guy is a real clown. As if the makeup wasn’t enough. 🙄

  12. BIL:

    ~15 or so I’d guess with a calliope for background music.
