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.

Wow... This is amazing... First of all Tony was NOT wearing the suit at the time of arrest, nor had he consumed any alcohol. He is just Crazy Tony. The guys were playing a harmless prank that went into epic fail. Tony is a good guy and a hard worker, buy you never know what stunt he is gonna pull out of his hat. Check him out on you tube "The Crazy Tony Show" he is a hoot!
