Marine accused of exposing self, waving shotgun, shouting white supremacy slogans, while wearing child's banana costume

According to this bizarre news item, one Carlton Kohnert—an enlisted Marine, shown on duty at left—dressed up in a child's yellow banana costume, exposed himself to a woman at the local Wendy's restaurant, then drove around on a ranch brandishing a shotgun and yelling about white power. A 21-year-old male friend and an 18-year-old girl were with him during the banana-clad spree:

"The banana costume has been seized and put into evidence," [Clallam County Sheriff's Sgt. Randy Pieper ] said. "[Kohnert] couldn't really tell us why he was in the costume. "All we know is he was drinking earlier in the day, but he didn't really have a reason for the costume."

(...) After leaving Port Angeles, the group made a stop at Four Seasons Ranch, where Kohnert -- still dressed in the banana costume -- got out, brandished a shotgun and began yelling, Pieper said.

"We believe he was yelling something or other about white supremacy," Pieper said.
