He rides a four-wheeler standing up. He's been known to truss up a teenager in a tree like a freshly killed deer.

And now, Cousin "Crazy Tony" Lindsey of Honey Boo Boo fame continues to live up to his nickname: Lindsey was arrested earlier this month for sprinting along a Georgia highway - in a gorilla suit.

"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," writes Deputy Joe Rozier in a police report obtained by TMZ.

After stopping the car and searching the scene with his flashlight, Rozier says he "observed several white males run up the embankment and into the woods."

The officer shouted that he was going to release his K-9 on the group before someone shouted back, "You don't have to do that. We're coming back" - sans suit (it was stashed in the woods).

The menagerie's total tally? Five adults and two kids (no word if Sugar Bear was among the crowd).

After retrieving the suit - now a piece of evidence - the adults were arrested for reckless conduct and booked into the local jail.

We can only hope the cameras were there to catch it all. All we have so far is Lindsey's smirking mug shot.
