[Ed. – Granted, this isn’t one of our epic crocodile-involved incidents. But we try to stay on top of all these things for you.]
It happened in October, but the suspect was just taken into custody by U.S. Marshals.
FWC officials say 23-year-old Joshua James pulled up for his order and after a server handed over a drink and turned around James reached into the back of his truck and tossed the 3-and-a-half foot gator through the drive-thru window.
The incident report showed a picture of the gator inside the restaurant.
James faces charges of aggravated assault and unlawful possession and transportation of an alligator.
FWC said James admitted to picking up the gator on the side of Southern Boulevard and bringing it to the fast food restaurant.
