A Dad Gets Shot Trying to Discipline His Kid by Dressing as a Clown

A Dad Tries to Discipline His Kid by Dressing as a Clown and Chasing Her . . . Then a Scared Neighbor Shoots at Him

I'm thinking this method of discipline isn't in ANY parenting books.

A 25-year-old guy named Vernon Barrett Junior from Boardman, Ohio was having trouble with his six-year-old daughter . . . he says she's been having behavior problems at school and at home. So he decided to try to scare her straight on Saturday.

How? By dressing up as a SCARY CLOWN and chasing her down the street.

But she had no idea it was him. So as she ran down the street screaming, she ran into a random neighbor's apartment and begged for help because a clown was chasing her.

That neighbor is named Dion Santiago. He'd had a few beers and HE was scared of the clown outside too . . . so he grabbed his GUN and fired a few shots at him. Fortunately they missed.

The cops eventually came and sorted everything out. Vernon was charged with child endangerment and inducing panic . . . and Dion was arrested for using weapons while intoxicated. They're both due in court today.
