What fun would being a redneck be without a little drunken stupidity? That’s exactly what one of the relatives of Honey Boo Boo must have thought recently when he decided to join in on a drunken prank. Honey Boo Boo‘s cousin, “crazy” Tony Lindsey, who has also starred on Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, was arrested last night when cops snagged the redneck having a little too much fun that could have taken a dangerous turn!
They don’t call him “crazy” for no reason apparently. Last night, Honey Boo Boo’s cousin, Tony Lindsey was arrested for a prank that could have gone very wrong. Lindsey was among a group of guys who decided it would be fun for one of them to run around the highway in a gorilla suit. Not the brightest idea, obviously.
Luckily for the group, a Georgia police officer was on the highway around 11 p.m. and noticed the pranksters. According to TMZ, the officer said: “I observed a white male dressed in a gorilla suit acting as if he was going to jump into my lane of travel. I swerved into the left lane to avoid an accident with the person.” Then he did what any police officer would do – hunt down the idiots responsible.
The officer when on to reveal that he went after the culprits: “observed several white males run up the embankment and into the woods,” but when he announced that he would release a K-9 on them, they all came back – minus the gorilla suit. Eventually, the group, including Tony Lindsey, confessed to the crime, and they were, without a doubt, drunk. All involved were arrested, but then later released. Reps for Honey Boo Boo have yet to comment.
