Cops cuff armed white supremacist in banana costume

Indecent exposure kicks off lively afternoon in Washington

Combat fraud and increase customer satisfaction

A Washington state US Marine reservist was earlier this week cuffed following a lively Tuesday afternoon which saw him dress in a child's banana costume, indecently expose himself and wave a shotgun in the street while shouting "something or other about white supremacy".

Carlton Jeffery Kohnert, 21, accompanied by Anthony Marks Maybury, 21, and an unnamed 18-year-old woman, began his trip to jail by flashing at a woman at the Port Angeles Wendy's restaurant.

The three then drove to Saar's Market on US Highway 101 on the east side of town where they entertained locals by "pulling 360s" in the car park.

The jaunt continued through the Four Seasons Ranch neighbourhood, where banana man jumped out out the car and allegedly gave forth loudly about the superiority of the white race.

Cops finally pulled the trio on a nearby highway. Sergeant Randy Pieper, of Clallam County Sheriff's department, explained to the Peninsula Daily News that Kohnert "couldn't really tell us why he was in the costume".

He added: "All we know is he was drinking earlier in the day, but he didn't really have a reason for the costume."

Kohnert has been charged with "reckless endangerment, aiming or discharging a weapon and indecent exposure". Maybury was collared for "investigation of reckless endangerment", while the teenage girl escaped arrest since she was apparently just along for the ride.

Cops were on Tuesday awaiting a warrant to search the car since they spotted "two empty shotgun shells in the passenger seat", but Pieper was able to confirm that "the banana costume has been seized and put into evidence". ®
