My Encounter with a Scary Clown

Real Estate Agent with GreatWest Realty DRE# 00827565

Imagine for a minute you are riding your bike along the serene American River Parkway, here in Sacramento. All of a sudden you come upon this character riding a skateboard. What would you think?  I remember the encounter vividly!  It was about 3 years ago, before the scary clown sightings of today.

I take pictures for the purpose of remembering fond times.  I do not impose copyright restrictions on this photo, so you may feel free to use, or distribute as you wish.  However, should you need a Real Estate Professional in the Greater Sacramento area, I hope that you will contact me by email or by visiting my website - Thank You!

Myrl- I have to admit...clowns scare me, and this one is truly scary.  I had to scroll down quickly because I couldn't look at it.

Like everything today, Myrl Jeffcoat so many are so ensconced with the pursuit of political correctness that this has been blown way out of proportion. Clown lives matter!

Myrl, These days I would be very leery with all this clown nonsense. I would ride away quickly unless I knew the person inside the mask. In Texas someone on a skateboard looking like this probably would get shot.

He is wearing some kind of scary wig, too. I can't believe you got off your bike to take this picture, Myrl. I don't get the clown thing that seems to be going in the schools right now. Some 8 year old boy in Galt was chased home by clowns.

That was downright scary and inappropriate. He should have been arrested and interrogated. Why would he do that? He could have scared someone to death. Shame on him!

That photo should be posted  with a Wanted sign and investigated.

Seeing anyone wearing a "Saw" mask in public lwould be a bit unnerving Myrl Jeffcoat

Not just clowns, but any mask at's going to scare me. Especially when it's not expected like in this instance. Creepy!

Yup that's a little bit creepy if you don't know who it is.  And what's he got behind his back?

With all the recent activity in regards to clowns harassing people and children this would be unsettling for me and he better hope he is not near a school or children I would make sure to contact authorities.  So sad that they take something so innocent as a clown at a circus and make it evil.

 I have never been scared of clowns maybe because when I was little I had surgery and they gave me the cutest clown doll ever! Fastforward some of these masks of clowns are downright creepy!


Not sure he should be arrested but for sure stopped and veified!

Myrl, If it was not close to Halloween and I encountered this teenager (?) I would think he enjoyed scary movies and wanted a reaction.  The fact that he let you take his photo is a very good sign he is harmless and was probably happy to get the attention he seemed to need.
