crazy tony lindsey'Crazy' Tony Lindsey, Honey Boo Boo's cousinHey, Honey Boo Boo fans, have no fear that the success of the reality show is in any way, shape, or form changing its cast members! Case in point: Boo Boo's cousin, "Crazy" Tony Lindsey, has been arrested, because cops believe he's part of a group of guys who were causing trouble on a Georgia highway ... He may have even been the guy in the gorilla suit. Haaa, oh yes, because OF COURSE this crime involves a gorilla suit.

And TMZ is reporting on the whooole crazy mess ...

Apparently, when Deputy Joe Rozier was driving along Highway 20 around 11 p.m., he noticed "a white male dressed in 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." Oooookay! Faaaaantastic.

Rozier said he immediately stopped his car and went searching for the gorilla and any accomplices. He reportedly "observed several white males run up the embankment and into the woods." He shouted at the guys that he was about to release his K-9 on them, but someone yelled, "You don't have to do that, we're coming back."

As it turned out, five adults and two kids were involved, but none were in the gorilla suit! But they admitted they had stashed it in the woods ... The adults were arrested for reckless conduct, and the gorilla suit was taken into evidence. Surprise surprise -- cops say alcohol played a part in the evening's antics, as well.

Wow. Well, I guess this all sounds about right. Honey Boo Boo reps were contacted for comment, but I'm sure they have nothing to say. 'Cuz come on, in Honey Boo Boo's world, this kind of reckless -- but thankfully harmless -- crime is just par for the course. And I'm sure they've got their fingers crossed that TLC got it alllll on camera!

How ridiculous is this?!

    I drop a leave a response when I especially enjoy a article on a site or I have something to add to the conversation. Usually it's a result of the sincerness displayed in the article I looked at. And after this article 'Honey Boo Boo' Star Arrested for 'Reckless Conduct' Involving a Gorilla Suit ... Sounds About Right! | The Stir. I was actually excited enough to drop a comment ;) I actually do have 2 questions for you if it's okay. Could it be simply me or do a few of these comments come across like they are coming from brain dead individuals? :-P And, if you are writing at other online sites, I'd like to follow anything new you have to post. Would you make a list every one of all your social sites like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?
