Man in clown makeup allegedly dangled child from overpass

A man wearing clown makeup is accused of dangling a child upside down from a railroad overpass after coming home drunk from a Halloween party. The Kenosha News reports that court records show a woman called police after she saw Antonio Brown dragging two screaming children into the woods in Kenosha around 2 a.m. Sunday. The 13-and 8-year-old children said Brown was their mother’s boyfriend.

A criminal complaint says Brown forced the children to drink alcohol. When the crying children tried to run away, Brown grabbed the older child and held him upside down from the overpass.Brown is accused of later dangling the younger child from a train car. Brown was reportedly highly intoxicated. He’s charged with child abuse and second-degree reckless endangerment and is due in court next Tuesday.
