Man In Gorilla Suit Wins Bet, But Gets Arrested

(AP) A man who went to buy cigarettes in a gorilla suit to win a bet with his girlfriend is now being accused of receiving stolen property. Altoona police said they noticed a 20-year-old man walking down the city's Sixth Avenue just after midnight on Wednesday dressed as an ape.

Police said that when they stopped the man, they discovered he was wanted for receiving stolen property.

Police said the man told them he had gone to the convenience store in disguise because his girlfriend had bet him he wouldn't do it.

The man was charged with receiving stolen property and was released on bond.
