BRENTON Green was monkeying around when he donned a costume to entertain city shoppers, but the stunt backfired when he was arrested and tossed in the lock-up.
Dressed as a monkey, Mr Green, 21, attracted the attention of two police officers on bicycles as he paraded among Perth shoppers on Sunday afternoon, hugging people, posing for photos, waving and dancing.
When the officers interrupted his show in front of about 40 onlookers and asked for his name, he responded by shaking his head and making strange sounds.
The second time police asked for his name, Mr Green replied: “Monkey”. The officers responded by pushing him against a shop window and handcuffing him in front the stunned audience. http://www.news.com.au/perthnow/story/0,27574,25979697-2761,00.html
