Banana-costumed Port Angeles man suspected of exposing self, brandishing gun

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 Port Angeles.

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 neighborhood where the man got out brandishing the gun.

After his arrest, 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.
