    TX - Pursued by Coco Bongo "gorilla," San Antonio man attempts suicide on U.S. 281

    Man chased by ‘gorilla' runs into car on 281 (mysa.com)
    An apparently suicidal man was hit by a car on U.S. 281 while being chased by a person in a gorilla costume early today, police said.

    According to an incident report, a 25-year-old man was seen running toward traffic after leaving the Coco Bongo nightclub.
    ---
    He was rushed to University Hospital with injuries not considered life-threatening.

    The person in the gorilla costume — who police found at Coco Bongo shortly after the wreck — told investigating officers that the man had said he wanted to kill himself before running toward the oncoming vehicles.

    This is what happens when people monkey around with alcohol.

    (Sorry....couldn't resist.)

    And yes, it is too hot here for wearing a gorilla costume. At least it is on the coast. Can't speak for the rest of the state.
