Last week in Miami, 64-year-old Fernando Aguilera walked into a convenience store and tried to trade a live alligator in for beer.

Monty Hall would be so proud!

Fernando had caught the four-foot gator at a nearby park and strolled up to the clerk and attempted the swap for a 12-pack of brewskis. The clerk denied the barter deal and called the police instead.

The would-be swap king was cited for illegal possession of an alligator, and he could get up to six months in jail and a $500 fine.

The alligator was released into the wild.

There's no word on the brand of beer Fernando was desiring.
