CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, Va. (WTVR) — A Chesterfield County bus driver found a unique way to calm the fears of some of her students after recent clown sighting reports in the area.
The Salem and Hening Elementary bus driver said she decided to fix up a batch of Anti-Clown spray to help her students overcome their fears.
"Those that needed that extra courage asked for it," said the bus driver. "It worked like a charm and there were no tears today on the bus."
She said the disinfectant spray made the kids day and turned their tears into smiles.
This comes after multiple reports of 'creepy clown' sightings in Central Virginia and evenan arrest in Henrico County for two teens wearing a clown mask and scaring children.
The Anti-Clown Spray, created by the bus driver, can repel clowns with one squirt and make them invisible to clowns with two squirts.
There is no word on the ingredients of the spray, but the label says it should only be administered by adults.
