    A Pennsylvania police chief had a run in with two "scary" clowns who wound up running away when he turned around to take a swing at them.

    York City School District Police Chief Mike Muldrow tells the York Dispatch he was jogging Wednesday with a friend when he heard leaves crunching behind him.

    Muldrow turned around to see two young guys, about 12 or 13, wearing clown masks. One was carrying a big stick.

    That's when the 42-year-old cop says he turned around, took a fighting stance and said, "Let's do it," while swinging in the clowns' general direction.

    They ran away and Muldrow resumed jogging.
