Meth-Smoking Clown Arrested At Waffle House
Costumed suspect, 25, faces drug raps
MARCH 4--A man dressed as a clown locked himself in the bathroom of a Georgia Waffle House after smoking methamphetamine at the restaurant’s counter, according to police who collared the costumed suspect on multiple narcotics charges.
The bizarre 4 AM incident Tuesday ended with the arrest of Jacob Worthington, a 25-year-old Army veteran.
Police were summoned to the Athens eatery by a Waffle House worker who reported that a man wearing a clown suit was smoking methamphetamine inside the business.
After cops removed Worthington from the bathroom, a search of his book bag turned up marijuana, a jar of mushrooms, LSD, a digital scale, rolling papers, and a “smoking bowl” with pot residue.
An Athens-Clarke County Police Department report does not reveal why Worthington was dressed as a clown.
Pictured above, Worthington was arrested on four narcotics charges, three of which are felonies. He is being held in the county lockup in lieu of $8500 bond, according to jail records. (1 page)
