Florida Man Apologizes For Throwing Gator Into Drive-Thru Window
While James was in jail, a photo of the alligator in the restaurant went viral online. James made his first court appearance Tuesday and is now speaking out.
“We were just like fishing, hanging out and we just stumbled upon an alligator,” James said.
He said the group decided to pull a prank on their buddy who worked at the Wendy’s that received the alligator toss.
“I’m sorry for what I did, I mean, you know, just being stupid, not thinking and obviously I found out what the consequences were,” James said.
The 23-year-old is charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, petty theft and unlawful possession and transportation of an alligator.
The judge ordered him 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.
