A drunken man dressed as a clown is accused of dangling a child upside down from an overpass.

According to police, Antonio Brown from Kenosha, Wisc. came home after a Halloween party intoxicated and wearing clown makeup. The Kenosha News reported that a woman called police after she saw Brown dragging two screaming children, ages 13 and 8, into woods in early morning hours. The children's mother is Brown's girlfriend.

The 13-year-old boy told police that Brown forced the children to drink alcohol and that he vomited from drinking too much. The boys were frightened and wanted to leave, but Brown held them against their will and dangled one child over the overpass.

Brown also dangled a child from a train car, holding him by the neck and ankle.

Brown has been charged with child abuse and second-degree reckless endangerment and is being held in the Kenosha County Jail.
