I’m sure that plenty of you devoted readers have been to Florida multiple times, be it to go to Walt Disney World, spend some time on the beach or even attend school. For me, it was always to visit my grandparents and/or catch a spring training game or two, and the Sunshine State always seemed like something of a tropical paradise.
Then, I got older, and learned all about the seedy underbelly of the state that has such beauty inside a giant cesspool. It just so happens that today, Florida’s, er, quirkiness is back in the news.
According to WPTV, the local NBC affiliate in West Palm Beach, 23-year-old Joshua James is accused of tossing a three-and-a-half-foot long ALLIGATOR through the drive-thru window of a local Wendy’s last October.
Per the report, James will be facing charges of aggravated assault and “unlawful possession and transportation of an alligator,” the latter of which could only exist in Florida.
How did James get a three-and-a-half-foot alligator into his truck, let alone through a tiny drive-thru window without resistance from employees? Moreover, why would James admit to it?
Either way, keep it up, Florida. You’re doing a great job leading the nation in quirky arrests and appearances on Cops.
