Police in Massachusetts will charge a father who followed a school bus in a clown mask



This is the worst way to prank your kid. Ever. 

Police in Massachusetts say they plan to charge a father who wore a scary clown mask and followed his child's school bus.

Auburn police say some middle-school-age children were so scared that they hid under a backyard deck.

The comments on the post range from condemnation to defense of the man's actions. 

Police say the man followed the bus Tuesday.

They posted a picture on their Facebook page Thursday saying they intended to seek charges of disorderly conduct and disturbing the peace. Because the charges have not been formally filed, the man's name was not made public.

Authorities have asked that others learn from this man's mistake.
