I think by now we’re all getting pretty tired of the great clown panic of 2016, so for a moment, let us take a break from talking of creepy clowns…and talk of drunken ones instead.
According to an arrest warrant, the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office was dispatched to the scene after “a series of calls about a white female wearing clown-like makeup, a stocking cap, and was either partially or completely nude that was running up and down Louise Road, chasing cars and jumping out in front of other cars.”
While a deputy was on the way to the scene, 911 received four calls from Kreidel “in which call takers were berated, threatened and cursed,” the warrant states.
When the deputy went to Kreidel’s home on Louise Road, he found her in a sports bra, pajama-style bottoms, a stocking cap and wearing clown makeup on her face and body. She was also holding a beer.
When questioned, Candice A. Kreidel, 37, initially tried to play the I don’t know what you’re talking about card, but later admitted that yes, she had been running around in traffic. When asked why she called 911 a bunch of times to yell at the people there, she explained that she did it because “they need to do their jobs.” She didn’t elaborate, which means we may never find out how tying up their phone lines and wasting their time was supposed to help out in that area.
She’s been charged with disorderly conduct, public intoxication and making non-emergency 911 calls.
