Threats of clowns luring kids into woods or attacking students at school have been spreading fear on social media and causing school lockdowns across Alabama for the past several weeks, authorities said.
There is little evidence sinister clowns are anywhere to be found in Alabama and officials across the state are trying to put an end to the "creepy clown" sightings.
Some police departments have identified and arrested suspects who have used the clown persona to make threats against schools. Other law enforcement agencies are still trying to catch those behind the threats and pranks.
