Drunk Driver Had Monkey In His Truck

Any police officer will tell you that dealing with a drunk driver can be extremely strange. After all, drunk people aren’t noted for their calm, reasonable reactions to a stressful situation, or their refusal to engage in ridiculous hijinks. Still, one drunk driver might take the cake, considering that he had a monkey for the officers.

Eugene Kotelman was pulled over Thursday, which shouldn’t have happened in the first place because his license is suspended. He’s been charged multiple times with DUI and driving with a suspended license. But this time was a little different.

Police saw a “small monkey” in his truck and let the little guy out. Apparently he was a pet of Kotelman’s, but since you need a license to own a monkey, he was taken in by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. Kotelman will just have to buy a toy monkey, like the rest of us.
