There was quite a bit of clowning around on the Downtown Mall in Charlottesville Wednesday morning.

"Bonzo the Clown" patrolled the mall with Charlottesville police chief Tim Longo.

They issued citations to people caught smiling in public, spreading cheer, and having just a good ol' time. The citations were actually boxes of animal crackers.

"Bonzo the Clown" was here to tell people about the Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus visiting Charlottesville in December.
