Daylen Holloman, of Palm Coast, was arrested on a charge of indecent exposure after the incident, which occurred Wednesday at 12:30 a.m. at the 7-Eleven at 623 N. Oleander Ave.

According to Daytona Beach police, Holloman called 911 but would only say, "I don't know" when he was asked numerous questions, including whether he had an emergency.  Near the end of the call, the dispatcher asked Holloman what his name was and he said, "It's Monkey."

The dispatcher then asked to speak to someone else inside the store.

An officer later arrived at the store and asked Holloman what he did know, and Holloman said, "I know I am a monkey," police said.

The officer told Holloman that monkeys don't wear clothes and Holloman said, "Oh, really?" and started stripping, Daytona Beach police said, adding that Holloman exposed himself to a female store clerk and customers.

Police didn't say if they suspect Holloman was on drugs at the time of the incident.

Holloman was arrested and taken to jail.  He was later released after posting $500 bail.
