BOARDMAN TWP., Ohio -

A Boardman man was arrested on Saturday night after dressing up as a clown to scare his daughter.

Boardman Police were called to Lemans Drive where a man tried to scare his daughter by dressing up as a clown and chasing her down the street. 

According to police, the young girl ran down the road to an apartment building where an apartment tenant yelled to the clown that he was going to call the police. 

The girl's father then took off running in the other direction. Police say the tenant fired a gun into the grass toward the clown. 

Authorities say the father was arrested for child endangering and inducing panic and the caller was arrested for using a weapon while intoxicated. 

Neither person has been officially charged yet, but both are expected in court Tuesday morning.
