2 Virginia Beach men wearing clown mask run through theater

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WTVR) – Two men are behind bars in Virginia Beach after running through a movie theater wearing clown masks.

Police said Blake Newton and Jamar Washington Jr. were arrested in the theater lobby Monday night.

Both men were charged with wearing a mask in public, which is a felony, as well as disorderly conduct.

Police said the men’s prank was insensitive as it occurred just months after a gunman killed 12 people and injured 58 others at a theater in Colorado.
