Poor caveman. All he wanted to do is get crunk and groove out to Queens of the Stone Age.

A hirsute music festival attendee was picked up on drug possession charges by Alabama police earlier this month.

Apart from sporting a shaggy mop and a full beard, Christopher Woods, 29, was wearing a hairy vest that closely matched the rusty hue of his own locks when he was arrested at the Gulf Shores Hangout music festival May 16. We do hope that is an article of clothing, by the way.

Woods' getup and subsequent bleary-eyed mug shot got the Internet talking. The Smoking Gun dubbed him the "Alabama caveman," with a "mug shot taken in 10,000 B.C."

Although the New York Daily News struggled to comprehend "why the scruffy Huntsville native appeared to be rocking Neanderthal-style garb at 10:15 [in the morning]," an Alabama ABC affiliate station reports that Woods allegedly got caught with MDMA pills and a small amount of marijuana while entering the festival. That means some security guard probably patted down the Alabama caveman.

He wasn't the only one who got busted. The Baldwin County Sheriff's Office reported 20 arrests associated with the festival, which AL.com deemed lower than expected.
