"Crazy" Tony Lindsey is certainly living up to his nickname.

Honey Boo Boo's four-wheeling cousin, featured in an episode of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, was arrested for reckless conduct in McIntyre, Georgia, recently, TMZ reports.

A police officer driving along a Georgia highway around 11 pm says he nearly hit Lindsey -- who was wearing a gorilla suit at the time! -- and swerved off the road in order to avoid colliding with the reality star.

"I observed a white male dressed in a gorilla suit acting as if he was going to jump into my lane of travel," Deupty Joe Rozier explained to TMZ.

The officer got out of his car and reported seeing Lindsey, along with some of his pals, run off into the nearby woods.

Rozier threatened to release his K-9, but said someone from the group of rabble-rousers shouted, "You don't have to do that, we're coming back!"

When the group -- which included five adults and two children -- returned, none of them, mysteriously, had a gorilla suit on. They admitted Lindsey had taken it off and left it in the woods.
