An 18-year-old Tampa man was jailed Tuesday afternoon, charged with wearing a clown mask on a public road.
Deputies say Matthew David Lopez, of 7003 Ponderosa Drive, was seen with two other people walking south on N 58th Street, just north of E Fowler Avenue. What caught a deputy’s attention was Lopez’s masked face with a bright red-and-orange wig, according to an arrest affidavit.
The deputy followed the group in an unmarked car as the group walked west through a slightly wooded path behind several business offices.
