Prank ends in arrest


EFFINGHAM COUNTY — An early Halloween prank backfired for a local man.

Nathaniel Followell was arrested for disorderly conduct in Altamont Friday. 

A mother and child reported him to police after seeing him wearing a clown mask and carrying a chainsaw. 

Followell told police it was meant to be a joke for his employer.
