The creepy clown sightings happening around the country have now spread to Florida.
A video of a clown seen hiding in the woods near a road in Marion County has both deputies and residents on edge. The video was posted on Facebook last week and has since been viewed more than one million times.

During another reported sighting in Florida, a Palm Bay resident was walking her dog Sunday evening when she spotted two clowns staring at her, and then ran home as fast as she could.
Photos and videos of the creepy clown sightings are increasingly becoming popular and taking social media by storm.
Florida deputies, as well as police departments around the country, are issuing warnings to communities advising of the dangers behind the prank.
An 11-year-old girl in Athens, Georgia was arrested earlier this month for bringing a knife to school that she said was to protect her family and herself from clowns reportedly terrorizing the community, according to a police report.
