PALM BEACH, Fl. – If you throw an alligator at somebody, should the animal be considered a deadly weapon or just a joke?
That’s what one Florida family is trying to figure out.
Josh James was arrested for throwing an alligator through a Wendy’s drive thru. His parents say their son is harmless and it was just a prank. But, he’s in jail facing serious charges.
Along with assault charges he faces charges of unlawful possession and transportation of an alligator.
And in case you’re wondering what happened to the gator, it was released in a nearby canal.
