This could only happen in Florida.
A 23-year-old Florida man was arrested this week for an incident that occurred last October. It allegedly involved heaving a three-and-a-half foot long alligator through a Wendy’s drive thru window.
Apparently he picked the reptile up off the side of the road, drove to Wendy’s, ordered a large beverage, paid, and then pulled out the gator and flung it through the window. Why? Because Florida.
Actually, nobody seems to know the reason, although his parents are claiming it was all a dumb prank.
The alligator survived its fast food encounter and the suspect was charged with second degree petty theft (of the reptile), possession and injury of an alligator, and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon without intent to kill. After the arrest, Wendy’s released the following statement:
“This unfortunate incident occurred last year. The safety and security of our restaurant teams is very important to us, and we’re glad that no one was injured as a result of this situation.”
