Honey Boo Boo’s Cousin “Crazy Tony” Lindsey is living up to his nickname!
The TLC star was recently arrested for running around on a Georgia highway… in a gorilla suit?
"I observed a white male dressed in a gorilla suit acting as if he was going to jump into my lane of travel,” Deputy Joe Rozier noted in a police report. “I swerved into the left lane to avoid an accident with the person.”
But it wasn’t until the deputy stopped his car when he noticed that there was more than one ape on the loose. Several men ran into the woods, later giving themselves up to the officer who threatened to release his K-9 on the group.
Tony and some others quickly reappeared sans-gorilla suits (which were ditched in the woods and will now serve as evidence) and were arrested for reckless conduct and booked into the local jail.
