Anarchist clown detained by Louisville police.

Anarchist clown in costume gets arrested for riding his bike on the wrong side of the road. Many others, particularly those dressed as clowns, were detained by the police during this May Day march in Louisville. The majority of those detained were accused of writing on public and private properties–with sidewalk chalk. Those arrested were released and never actually taken to jail. (Those detained, that is, were not actually arrested.) Numerous detentions helped police keep as many people as possible from continuing to participate in the May Day march.
