An 18-year-old late for her job at McDonald’s called police and made up a fake story about a clown attacking her, say authorities.

Alexsandra Conley of Hamilton, Ohio called police around 6 am Saturday morning and said that a knife-waving clown jumped over a fence and cut her left thumb.

Conley described the suspect as a man wearing a clown suit with a red wig, white facial makeup and a teardrop on his left cheek.

Cops investigated and determined that she made up the story because she was running late for work and was afraid she would lose her job.

She now faces one count of making false alarms.
