LOXAHATCHEE, Fla. — Authorities have arrested a man accused of throwing a live alligator through the drive-thru window of a Wendy’s restaurant.

WPTV reported that Joshua James, 23, of Jupiter, Fla., faces multiple charges including aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

It allegedly happened at a Wendy’s drive-thru east of Loxahatchee, Fla., in October, but the suspect was just recently arrested.

Officials said the suspect pulled up for his order and the server handed him a drink. When she turned around, he allegedly reached into the back of his truck and threw a 3-and-a-half foot alligator through the drive-thru window.

Authorities said the suspect admitted to picking up the alligator and bringing it to the restaurant. The gator has since been released in a nearby canal, according to WPTVD.

The suspect has also been charged with illegally killing, possessing or capturing an alligator and second-degree larceny petit theft.
