It looks like a "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" star made a bit of a, well, boo boo. Cousin "Crazy Tony" Lindsey was arrested for reckless conduct while wearing -- wait for it -- a gorilla suit, E! News confirms.

Lindsey, who's made a bit of name for himself on the TLC reality series by way of his four-wheeling stunts, was spotted on a Georgia highway by an officer who claims Lindsey appeared as if he was going to jump in front of the police car. As a result, he swerved his vehicle to avoid hitting Lindsey, according to the deputy who spoke to E! News.

The officer subsequently stopped, got out of his vehicle and allegedly saw Lindsey and six other individuals (four adults and two children) running away into the woods, only to have them return after threatening to release his K-9 on the group.

As for the gorilla suit Lindsey had been wearing, the suspects admitted they got rid of it in the woods.

Lindsey and the others are no longer in custody.
