Police Cage Prowler Wearing Gorilla Suit

Somehow this did not happen in Florida.

I would have thought that the police would make him take the mask off for his mug shot.

"Think of the mask as an improvement"--one of the possible voices in his head?

Police refer to these type of captured criminals as "Gorillas in Their Mits".

Moran tussled with cops trying to handcuff him, but he was eventually subdued and placed under arrest.
I'm glad they clarified that because I was wondering if an actual gorilla had given him that shiner. I like the fact they took a mugshot picture of him in the gorilla suit too.
Police: Ma'am is this the gorilla you saw peering in your window?
Woman: Well, I'm not sure. I think my gorilla had a little more hair on top.
Also, good one LeDud.

Possibly related. Place your bets.

Incidentally, I saw Caged Prowler open for The Police.

No way - gorillas don't wear no suits.!

I was disappointed after the headline that Nicolas Cage was not involved.

That's a keen 'tussle' mark under the gorilla's eye.

Reminds me of this classic from MAD's Don Martin:


He was charged with multiple offenses, including unauthorized entry of an inhabited dwelling, methamphetamine possession, resisting a police officer with violence or force, and wearing a mask or hood in public.

Wait, wearing a mask in public is illegal? Gonna be a lot of kiddies in the pokey come Halloween.

My favorite part of this news item was the accused hiding under a mattress while wearing a gorilla costume and thinking it was totally going to make him invisible to the police.

During his incarceration this guy will cringe every night when staff says, "It's Bedtime for Bonzo."

In a bit of quick-thinking police work, the officers were able to lure him into the paddywagon with a banana.

Somewhere, music can be heard

George, George, George of the jungle
Strong as he can be - - Ahhh

When he gets into scrapes
When he makes his escape
With the help of his friend
An ape named Ape

.. and the genius who wrote this song? None other than "Weird Al" Yankovic.

@MOTW - That theme song is from the 1967-ish. So, no Mr. Yankovic did not write it. He did a cover of it on "Dare to be stupid".

My apologies. I will file suit against Google first thing Monday.
shuffles to the back of the geezer bus

I checked. IT was Stan Worth and Sheldon Allman.

@MOTW - you are forgiven.

Why did the movie Trading Places cross my mind? Maybe Mr. Gorilla's incarceration will be something akin to Paul Gleason's in that epic film.
