Drunk Driver Found With Monkey In His Truck

LARGO, Fla. (AP) — A man was arrested on a felony drunk driving charge and later on wildlife violations after police discovered a small monkey in his truck.

Largo Police say Eugene Carl Kotelman was speeding when they stopped him Thursday.

They say that Kotelman was driving on a suspended license and had been previously charged many times with driving on a suspended license and numerous times for DUI.

Officers noticed a “small monkey” in Kotelman’s truck and released the primate to Kotelman’s friend. After Kotelman bonded out of jail on the DUI charge, Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission officers charged him with possession of wildlife and two counts of violating fish and wildlife rules.

State officers took custody of the monkey.
