Man dressed as clown arrested for smoking meth in Waffle House

A man dressed as a clown was arrested at a Florida Waffle House early on Tuesday morning after an employee called to complain he had smoked methamphetamine at the restaurant's counter, according to an Athens-Clarke County police report.

When responding to the complaint at about 4:40am, a dispatcher provided a description of the suspect: a white male about 30 years old who had red hair and was wearing a clown suit. When officers arrived, they learned the suspect was in a locked restroom, and after the Waffle House employee unlocked the door officers encountered 25-year-old Jacob Worthington inside.

When asked if he had any weapons, Worthington reportedly responded that he had a knife, which officers removed from one of his pockets. Officers escorted Worthington out into the dining area where he admitted ownership of a bowl with residue that was on the counter which the employee said he had used to smoke meth. Worthington was then searched, and officers found LSD wrapped in foil and rolling papers.

His bag contained a jar of mushrooms, a jar of pot, a digital scale and a gold keepsake box that held some more pot and an unidentified white powder. Worthington was arrested and charged with possession with intent to distribute marijuana, possession with intent to distribute Schedule I and II narcotics, possession of Schedule I and II narcotics and possession of drug-related objects. Worthington is said to be a resident of Gainesville. He continues to be held at the Clarke County Jail in lieu of bonds totalling $8,500.
