This has to be the most ‘Florida Man’ thing a Florida man has ever done.

Florida has a hard-earned reputation for having the most bizarre criminals in the United States. There’s even a “Florida Man” movie.

It’s gotten to the point where websites can make up the most absolutely bizarre stories they can imagine and people will take them seriously, because Florida.



That was the situation we thought we had come across when we saw this story. A friend posted a link and we thought “No way.” However, after doing some clicking around, it turns out the story is actually true.

A Jupiter man threw it through the restaurant’s drive-thru window, according to a Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission incident report.

It happened in October, but the suspect was just taken into custody by U.S. Marshals.

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.

What we can’t work out which is most Florida about the situation, Joshua James throwing the alligator through the drive-thru window…or his parents claiming that it was just a prank.
