Today, in the 'most Florida' headline in the history of mankind:

The Florida man in question is Joshua James, the brave idiot who was arrested on Tuesday after he threw a live alligator through the drive-thru window of a local Wendy's back in October, the Washington Post reports. Yes, you read that right: A live fucking alligator.

Here's how the incident went down, according to local NBC affiliated WPTV:

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.

According to the Post, James faces three charges: Aggravated assault with a deadly weapon; petty theft; and (our personal favorite) a charge related to the illegal killing, capture or possession of an alligator. 

Upon his arrest, James reportedly "admitted to picking up the gator on the side of Southern Boulevard and bringing it to the fast food restaurant," according to WPTV. The alligator was released into a nearby canal.

Only in Florida, folks. Only in Florida.
