A habitually speeding motorist who has been continually evading police by donning an ape mask led to the "mistaken identity" arrest of the ape son of Cornelius and Zira, the chimpanzee scientists from the Planet of the Apes.
"now listen guys - please! I don't even have a license"
Caesar, pictured here at his North Hollywood home was quoted as saying: "although I understand this was a misunderstanding, this practice of species profiling must stop before more innocent apes are persecuted and we will have no other choice but to rise up all over again".
Caesar has retained a Jewish Orangutan attorney from the law firm of Zaius, Zaius and Cohen and is seeking and undisclosed amount of damages from this incident. The Phoenix police department would not comment.
