An experiment on primate alcoholism may have gotten out of control recently in Augusta where police found an allegedly intoxicated lab technician with his pants down in a room with uncaged monkeys.
Georgia Health Sciences University lab tech Coley Mitchell, 32, was arrested on charges of public intoxication after a co-worker spotted him partially unclothed in a locker room in the Sanders Research and Education Building last Monday.
The Augusta Chronicle reports Mitchell was seated in a chair with his pants half-down while two monkeys roamed the room freely.
