Wash. man in banana costume has little appeal

The Associated Press

PORT ANGELES, Wash. — A man in a banana costume is accused of exposing himself and brandishing a shotgun while riding around with a bunch of friends in Washington state. The Clallam County sheriff's office says the 21-year-old was arrested Tuesday evening for investigation of indecent exposure and reckless endangerment.

The Peninsula Daily News reports police first received a report of the costumed man exposing himself at a restaurant.

Sheriff's Sgt. Randy Pieper says they also drove through a Port Angeles neighborhood where the man got out brandishing the gun.

After his arrest, authorities say, the man couldn't explain why he was costumed. The other man also was arrested, but an 18-year-old woman in the car was allowed to split.

The banana costume was seized as evidence.
