Several area juveniles have learned not to clown around about clowns.

A Groves youth and a Nederland youth, in separate incidents, ended up scaring others by their actions but no arrests were made, according to police.

A social media account for “the Groves clown” listed the names of some students at a local middle school implying something bad was going to happen.

Groves Police were able to determine who made the post ad officers spoke with the child’s parents.

Earlier this week in Nederland a ninth grader showed up at a middle school football game with a clown mask although he wasn’t wearing the mask, according to Nederland police.

The juvenile did not commit a crime and was turned over to his mother.
