Man in banana costume arrested for indecent exposure

Posted by John de Leon

Clallam County sheriff's deputies on Tuesday arrested a man dressed in a child's banana costume after he allegedly exposed himself to a woman at a Port Angeles restaurant.

We're not making this up.

According to the Peninsula Daily News, Carlton Jeffery Kohnert, 21, is suspected of exposing himself to a woman at a Port Angeles Wendy's restaurant and then driving through Four Seasons Ranch brandishing a shotgun. He was arrested for investigation of reckless endangerment, aiming or discharging a weapon and indecent exposure, Clallam County sheriff's Sgt. Randy Pieper tells the Daily News.

A second man who was with Kohnert, Anthony Marks Maybury, 21, was arrested for investigation of reckless endangerment.

Pieper said Kohnert didn't offer much of an explanation for the yellow banana costume. "All we know is he was drinking earlier in the day, but he didn't really have a reason for the costume," Pieper told the Daily News.

After the alleged incident in Port Angeles, the suspects stopped at Four Seasons Ranch, where Kohnert -- still dressed in the banana costume -- got out, brandished a shotgun and began yelling, Pieper said.

Deputies arrested the men a short time later.

"The banana costume has been seized and put into evidence," Pieper said.
