Cops: Teenage "Idiots" Busted For Evil Clown Stunt That Left Girls "In Hysterics"
Two 18-year-old women dressed as clowns were arrested last night after they jumped out of a car and chased after a pair of petrified girls, according to Michigan police.
The victims, both 14, ran from the screaming clowns to police headquarters in Roseville, a city in suburban Detroit. The children, cops reported, were “in hysterics.”
Officers dispatched to investigate the 9 PM incident quickly located the costumed suspects (whom cops described as “morons” and “idiots” in a press release). Upon spotting the cops, the clowns took off on foot, but were quickly apprehended.
The suspects--Elandra Sledge and Jaime Sailinis--were dressed in “full clown regalia from head to foot,” police reported. The duo “stated they thought it was funny to terrorize unsuspecting pedestrians,” investigators added.

The teenagers were charged with disorderly conduct, a misdemeanor, and booked Thursday night into the Macomb County Jail (from which they were subsequently released). Sledge and Sailinis are scheduled for an October 20 District Court hearing.
