23-year-old Cody Blake Hession led police on a chase after he stole a car. He ended up crashing the car in a ditch and tried to run off. When he was arrested, officers found a Capuchin monkey named Monk clinging to the driver’s chest. Hession said he got the monkey 4 years ago in South Carolina. But, he didn't have a permit so police took Monk. Hession is being held in lieu of $5,000 bail facing charges of auto theft. Monk is at Suncoast Primate Sanctuary in Palm Harbor, Florida.
