Whether you like it or not, Honey Boo Boo is here to stay. Fortunately for us, one of the show’s characters, Crazy Tony, has been banned from the show, after pulling an extremely dangerous hoax. What did he do? Keep reading for the details!
Here Comes Honey Boo Boo is full of ridiculous hijinks, however one family friend took it a little too far back in November. Crazy Tony, whose real name is Tony Lindsey, had a little too much go-go juice one night, and decided it would be hilarious if he tried scaring drivers entering a highway while wearing a gorilla suit and jumping out at them. Yes, you read that right: jumping out at cars in a gorilla suit. Thankfully, in a “Where are the cops when you need them” moment, Police Deputy Joe Rozier unwittingly fell victim to Tony’s pranks-and arrested the bunch. In a statement about the arrest, he 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.” The deputy said that after pulling over to the side of the road, he grabbed his flashlight and took to pursing the group, noting that he “observed several white males run up the embankment and into the woods.” After shouting at the gorilla clad man and his crew, Rozier threatened to release the K-9 he had with him. The group surrendered, saying “You don’t have to do that, we’re coming back.”
The whole group contained five adults and two children, which begs the question as to why you would have children playing by a highway in the first place. In an obvious attempt to distance her family from the man, Mama June has booted Crazy Tony from the show. In a statement to TMZ, June stated, “We love him as a friend… but that was a crazy story. Not trying to be mean, but we want to keep it family oriented. Crazy Tony’s just a family friend… who is just crazy.” Well said, Mama June, well said.
What do you think is next for Crazy Tony? Will he stay out of the show forever, or weasel his way back in? Let us know in the comments!
