Inebriated Largo Driver Found With Monkey

When police pulled over a man speeding on East Bay Drive Thursday night they no doubt got surprise when they found a monkey in the truck along with him.

According to police, officers pulled over 36-year-old Eugene Carl Kotelman, who was driving 70 mph on the road, just after midnight Friday morning.

Police discovered Kotelman had been driving on a suspended license and had a lengthy history of DUI charges. He was again arrested for DUI.

The monkey, who was in the truck with him at the time, was turned over to one of his friends.

When Kotelman posted bond this morning he was arrested again by FWC for Possession of Wildlife and 2 counts Violation of Fish or Wildlife Rules.

The monkey is now in FWC custody.
