A Florida man who allegedly hurled an alligator through a Wendy’s drive-thru window has been arrested, according to NBC affiliate WPTV.
According to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, Joshua James threw the alligator through a drive-thru window of the Royal Palm Beach, Florida restaurant.
The incident happened in October, but James, age 23, was taken into custody by U.S. Marshals this week.
FWC officials say James pulled up for his order and after a server handed over a drink, James reached into the back of his truck and tossed the 3-and-a-half foot gator through the drive-thru window.
The FWC 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.
The alligator was later released in a nearby canal.
