Clown Carrying Machete Attempts To Hitchhike On California Highway

By Zachary Brenner

One of the first things we are taught after getting our driver's licenses is to never pick up hitchhikers. There's lots of creeps and weirdos out there. Take, for example, this machete-wielding clown trying to hitch a ride in California. 

You're probably thinking to yourself that you would never pick up a machete-wielding clown. Here's the interesting thing, though. That's what everyone thought and literally no one picked him up. 

Police were called and handcuffed the clown, 61-year-old Larry Allen Tovey. However, Tovey was quickly let go and not charged with anything, because nothing he did was illegal. The Monterey County Police Department explained why in a Facebook post.
