Georgia: Two Arrested & Charged with Making False Police Reports about Creepy Clowns

Two people were arrested in LaGrange, GA, and charged with making false reports about clowns attempting to lure children into a van:
Brandon Moody, 26, and Rebecca Moody, 27, were arrested and sent to Troup County Jail for obstruction and unlawful conduct during a 911 call. 

Brandon Moody called 911 and reported seeing clowns around a white van, a statement he later said he made up, the Troup County Sherriff’s Office said in a news release. He then advised Rebecca Moody to call 911 and make the same report, even though she was not in the area at the time. When officers arrived at the scene, they spoke to the driver of the white van, who said he ran out of gas, and searched his vehicle. 

"There were no sign of any costumes in or around the vehicle," police said in a statement.
Apparently, the community has been inundated by calls about creepy clowns recently. A nearby school was placed under a "soft lock down" because of these reports.
