Jan Stawovy entered a Pennsylvania Dairy Queen on Saturday around 1:30 PM and threatened customers while weilding a gun.

A 911 caller reported they saw a man dressed in a "bright yellow safety vest and a rainbow wig" get out of the car and walk into the ice cream chain, according to reports and local police.

The 61-year-old said he was "undercover" and that he was "working to restore Trump to President King of the United States."

He said he needed to "kill Democrats and liberals" and to protect himself from "drug traffickers."

An officer from the Delmont Borough Police Department arrived on the scene within one minute of the 911 call, potentially saving lives.

Officers subsequently arrested Stawovy without resistance, and while searching his car, they found two other weapons and a total of 62 rounds of ammunition.

According to CBS, the incident was not Stawovy's first time clowning around.

He had previously been kicked out of at least two churches because of threatening outbursts. Barren Run United Methodist Church said he had recently shown up at the congregation in full clown costume, frightening parishioners.
