After police investigated, a 22-year-old Alabama woman and one unnamed juvenile were found to be behind the Facebook group.
On Monday, Makayla Smith was arrested and charged with making a terrorist threat for using the Flomo Klown account, as well as another account called "Shoota Cllown" — both of which sent disturbing images and violent threats to students at Flomaton High School:
Smith and the juvenile put the small town high school on lockdown for several hours on Thursday, with over 30 officers and FBI agents at the school grounds.
While authorities insist there was "no threat" of clowns actually showing up to the school and causing harm, officials are still monitoring the situation. Detective Sergeant Michael Mangina said:
"Part of the problem is the fact this stuff gets on social media and it explodes and it alarms people and it just spreads. In today's climate, we're better safe than sorry."
Smith is being held on $200,000 bail and the unnamed juvenile is also expected to be charged.
Renowned humanitarian Angelina Jolie may not be as kind as everyone thinks she is -- especially when it comes to her estranged husband, Brad Pitt.
As surely know, following the shocking news that the Maleficent star had filed for divorce, the Fight Club actor was painted as a verbally abusive father and a potentially unfaithful partner. Tsk, tsk!
