(LOS ANGELES) — “Crazy” Tony Lindsey, a cousin of Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson, was arrested in an apparently drunken prank on a Georgia highway earlier this month, TMZ.com reports.
Lindsey, who has appeared on the TLC hit Here Comes Honey Boo Boo! was reportedly involved with a group of people who were scaring passing drivers by donning a gorilla suit.
Unfortunately for the pranksters, Georgia Deputy Joe Rozier was one of those drivers, and after swerving to avoid the fake ape, he stopped his patrol car and spotted the group running away.
After prepping to send a K9 cop into the darkness to fetch the pranksters, five men and two juveniles reportedly surrendered.
