This adds a whole new twist to the phrase, “It’s just a prank, bro.”
Joshua James of Royal Palm Beach, Florida (of course Florida) decided to go to Wendy’s to buy a soda, and along the way he got a brilliant idea for a practical joke - pick up a three-and-a-half-foot alligator from the side of the road and throw it through the drive-through window. Apparently he knew someone at the restaurant and thought it would be funny.
How he even managed all of that without getting something bitten off is beyond us.
[The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission] said James admitted to picking up the gator on the side of Southern Boulevard and bringing it to the fast food restaurant.
During his first court appearance Tuesday morning a judge ordered James to stay out of all Wendy's restaurants, to avoid contact or possession with any animals other than his mother's dog, to undergo a mental health evaluation and to avoid possessing any weapons. If he fails a random drug and alcohol test his bond will be rescinded. Bond was set at $6,000.
