So maybe it’s not 100% certain that he was drinking with the monkeys, but he let them out of their cages, he was drunk, and … as reported by The August Chronicle (Georgia):
According to a GHSU Police Bureau incident report, a co-worker discovered Coley Mitchell, 32, partially unclothed in the Laboratory Animal Services technician locker room at the Sanders Research and Education Building about 10:30 p.m. Monday.
Campus police said Mitchell, a Lab Animal Services technician, was highly intoxicated and sitting in a chair with his pants half-down.
Partially clothed, highly intoxicated – what about the monkeys?
The spokeswoman said two monkeys were found outside their cages in the lab but were confined to the room. There is no indication the monkeys had been harmed.
Police said Mitchell became combative and uncooperative with officers while being escorted from the locker room.
He was booked into the Richmond County jail Monday on charges of public intoxication.
A spokeswoman said Mitchell was still employed by Georgia Health Sciences University on Friday.
That’ll probably change. Here’s the source, including a mug shot.
