VIDEO: Man pistol whips scary clown prankster in California

STOCKTON, Calif. (KABC) -- A video showing a man dressed as a clown scaring random people in Northern California has gone viral after one man pistol whipped the prankster.

Sadiq Mohammad, the man behind the clown mask, quickly had the tables turned on him when he tried to surprise and frighten a man.

The man was caught on camera pulling out a gun and pistol whipping Mohammad.

"He just got a pistol, I don't know if it was real gun or fake, but it looked like a gun so it was a gun," Mohammad explained. "He hit me with it and I felt a little dizzy and I fell down and I just started telling him, 'It's a prank, it's a prank,' so he won't shoot me."

Mohammad told his family he was retiring the clown prank for good after the incident.

The 20-year-old from Stockton posts the videos to the YouTube channel "Hoodclips."
