(WGBA, NBC NEWSCHANNEL It's being called a creepy sight. A person dressed as a clown has been walking the streets at night in Green Bay, Wisconsin.

Photos of the clown are going viral on social media.

The clown, who is holding balloons, has even been given the name "Gags" the Green Bay clown.

The photos were captured Tuesday around two in the morning.

However, even though creepy, nothing is illegal about a person walking around as a clown.

"A person can walk down the sidewalk dressed however they want, as long as they're in a place they legally can be, and they're not in a place that has a closing time like a park, they can be there, dressed however they want," said Green Bay Police Captain Kevin Warych.
