Man charged with child abuse after bizarre post-Halloween party incident

KENOSHA, WI (WTAQ) - Prosecutors said a Milwaukee man in clown makeup was drunk, while dangling a child from a highway overpass after he left a Halloween party in Kenosha.

33-year-old Antonio Brown is charged with two counts each of felony child abuse and reckless endangerment.

A judge ordered a $10,000 cash bond. Brown is due back in Kenosha County Circuit Court next Tuesday for a preliminary hearing.

A witness told authorities that Brown was dragging a pair of screaming youngsters into a wooded area early Sunday. Investigators said Brown forced the youngsters -- ages 8 and 13 -- to drink alcohol.

The kids cried and tried running away. Prosecutors said Brown the grabbed the 13-year-old and hung him upside down from the overpass -- and later, he allegedly dangled the younger children from a railroad car.

Officials said Brown was a boyfriend of the children's mother.
