All across the country, there are reports of threatening clowns showing up in large metro areas. While most agree that it's just a bunch of jokers doing it for laughs, there are some police agencies taking a good look into the matter.

Not to be left out, Lawton has had some confirmed clown sightings, but not of a threatening nature. Local Randy Heidler managed to snap a pic of these two holding signs insisting they're of a more peaceful persuasion.

Whether they're sincere, or trying to lull us all into a false sense of security, it's best to keep your wits about you. There's nothing funny about taking a comically large hammer blow to the face.

If you come across a scene where you feel somewhat intimidated by a creepy clown, you might contact Lawton PD, or maybe just ignore them and move on with your life in motion. After all, unless you're life is in danger, it's probably a harmless prank. In the other case, remember rule #2... Double-tap.
