File This Under ... THE CASE OF THE MYSTERIOUS GORILLA SUIT!

TMZ has learned ... one of the stars of "Honey Boo Boo" was arrested earlier this month after cops say "Crazy" Tony Lindsey (Boo Boo's cousin) was part of a group wreaking havoc on a Georgia highway ... with a gorilla suit.

According to the police report, obtained by TMZ, Deputy Joe Rozier says he was driving along Highway 20 around 11 PM ... when he noticed someone carrying out a very stupid, and dangerous, prank: 

"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."

Rozier claims he immediately stopped the car, whipped out his flashlight and went searching for answers ... and "observed several white males run up the embankment and into the woods."

Rozier says he shouted at the group that he was going to release his K-9 on the perps ... when someone yelled back, "You don't have to do that, we're coming back."

The officer says he eventually made contact with 5 adults and 2 kids ... but NONE of them had a gorilla suit. Eventually, Dep. Rozier says they 'fessed up to stashing the suit in the woods.' 

After recovering the suit, Dep. Rozier says he arrested all of the adults for reckless conduct -- and booked them all into the local jail. The gorilla suit was taken into evidence.

Oh, and one more shocker ... cops say booze was involved.

The men have since been released from custody. A rep for "Honey Boo Boo" had no comment.

I thought it was a bit quiet on the Boo Boo front, I was going to post the other day about them, Re: what has happened to them. I guess with all the other drama that has been happening lately they must have felt a tad neglected.

It is like we live in a fascist police state. You can't even have a little fun and pull pranks without going to jail for it. All the cop had to do was tell the adults to go home and he could have confiscated the suit. Instead, he has to make them out to be criminals.


They were probably just trying to have a litttle fun. I think the Honey Boo Boo clan are some of the most innocent people I have ever seen. They won't even take a nicer house because they want to stay and help their community. I am guessing this man and his friends really meant no harm at all.

You gotta admit, they do know how to have fun. What a scandal!!! If this is the worst you can come up with on these people they are doing a lot better than most of LA put together. Wish I would have seen it so I could have peed myself laughing. Kudos the the Booboo clan.
