The woman said Nathan Allen McClain gave her the monkey.

McClain is charged with patronizing a prostitute.

Previously, McClain was arrested after leaving an adult book store and appearing to be under the influence of methamphetamines.

McClain’s wife posted a statement on Facebook saying the store was working to get Nathan McClain’s name off of the business and banking accounts.

The Galago, named Gooey, is at a sanctuary until the pet store can get a new license that allows it to possess but not sell the animal.
