Kenneth Kraucunas, Clown Accused Of Fighting Cop, Gets Ornery In Court (VIDEO)

Kenneth Kraucunas is an ornery clown.

The man accused of fighting with a cop in full clown gear last month appeared in court for the first time on Wednesday, red nose and all.

WISN got video of the Milwaukee resident arguing with a bailiff over his outfit.

"Take your nose off and take a seat," the bailiff said.

"Is that an order?" Kraucunas asked.

"Yes," the bailiff said.

"OK, I charge $1,000 for that. You're going to get a bill for that. Can I get your name?" Kraucunas said.

Another pretrial hearing is scheduled for January 9.

Kraucunas was charged with disorderly conduct and resisting an officer after his alleged fisticuffs with a Milwaukee police officer. Cops said the altercation started after they got reports Kraucunas was spraying drivers with a squirt gun.

Kraucunas' court clown act brings to mind a similar incident in September in which a Sydney, Australia man was almost slapped with contempt of court after appearing in a rainbow wig.
