'Honey Boo Boo' Star to Cops

GIVE ME BACK

MY GORILLA SUIT!!!

No, it's not Bigfoot -- it's the gorilla suit confiscated by police last month following a dangerous prank involving "Honey Boo Boo" star "Crazy" Tony Lindsey ... and now, Tony's demanding the suit back, insisting cops are overreacting about the whole thing.

TMZ broke the story ... Lindsey was arrested last month for taking part in a prank that involved a man scaring traffic alongside a Georgia highway ... in a gorilla suit.

Lindsey wasn't wearing the suit, but cops arrested him anyway for taking part in the stunt -- along with the other adults involved. Meanwhile, the gorilla suit was booked into evidence while police investigate the incident.

But Lindsey -- who loves the suit and uses it often to scare his buddies -- is pissed, telling TMZ, "It's wrong of them to keep my gorilla suit ... they're treating me like I killed somebody!"

Lindsey adds, the arresting officer "could have just told us all to knock it off and go home."

TMZ spoke with the Wilkinson County DA, who says the suit is part of an ongoing investigation and it can’t be released from evidence until the case is closed.

Can you imagine what this suit must smell like? Probably an odd mixture of alcohol, sex, and hillbilly sweat.

The world has hit rock bottom. You can't go any lower than Honey Boo Boo and it's cesspool of genes.

I have only seen this show twice (my first and my last time, HA). It shocks me that these people are paid $$ to act like trailer trash and just disgusting idiots. They couldn't pay me enough money to get on tv and act like this family does. *barf*

Was wondering what had become of the Boo Boos, guess they are laying low until they spend that wad of cash. I take it that there is a new show in the works for next year.

They must consider the gorilla suit a dangerous weapon. I doubt they need to run forensic tests on it. People know what a gorilla suit looks like. What crime was committed though? Did anyone even complain to the police?


Having fun is like a crime any more. Welcome to police state USA. Jokes are a danger to public health and safety.

They were hoping to get a reaction from people thinking they are seeing a sasquatch. It could of made someone get excited and lose control thus hitting a tree or an on coming car. They themselves could of been killed if a red neck with a rifle in his pickup came around the bend and decided to get himself a bigfoot and become famous. They didn't think this one through before deciding it was a fun thing to do.

This is not a complicated case - the DA should close it and give the suit back and be done with it. The guy probably will just have to pay a fine.
