Video shows clown clinging to Detroit bus
Detroit — The Detroit Department of Transportation says it’s not entertained by an online video showing a clown clinging to the back of a moving city bus.
The video that was recorded from another vehicle was posted on YouTube recently. In a statement, DDOT says that the “safety of our riders is DDOT’s number one priority.” The transit agency says it has video cameras inside and outside its buses and asked police to review the case.
The video can be seen here. Warning, there is graphic language.
“The safety of our riders is DDOT’s number one priority and that is why we have significantly increased our Transit Police presence and have installed surveillance cameras inside and outside of all our DDOT coaches,” the DDOT said in a statement. “We have forwarded the video to the Detroit Police Department for review.”
No one was reported injured and no one was taken into custody. Police are investigating.
