Alabama Man Dressed In Clown Costume Arrested For Drunk Driving

An Alabama man dressed as a clown was arrested last night for drunk driving, according to cops who noted that the suspect “gave no explanation” for his odd attire.

Acting on a tip from another motorist, a Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office deputy spotted a Ford SUV weaving across a road in Pinson, a city outside Birmingham.

Upon stopping the car around 8:30 PM, the cop noticed that “the driver of the vehicle was dressed as a clown,” according to investigators. The motorist, Joel Allan Sloan, 51, told the deputy that he “just had a few drinks.”

Sloan, police report, “gave no explanation for the clown costume.”

In addition to being collared for DUI, Sloan was also charged in connection with an outstanding felony theft warrant. Sloan is being held in the county lockup in lieu of $2500 bond, according to jail records.

As seen above, the handcuffed Sloan was photographed in full clown regalia while in custody. He also posed for a mug shot without his rainbow wig and colorful suit.
