You know it's going to be a wild story when it starts with the line "A Florida man...". This story brings up so many questions for me. Why did he have a 3-foot alligator in his car?

Florida man, 24-year-old Joshua James reportedly pulled up at a Wendy's in Loxahatchee, Florida and ordered a drink. When the cashier turned to get his order, he allegedly tossed a 3-foot alligator through the drive-thu window!

Thankfully, neither the Wendy's employee nor the alligator were harmed.

James is in some deep trouble. He's been charged with felony aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, misdemeanor possession of an alligator, and misdemeanor petit larceny, according to an incident report.

James' parents have stated this was all just supposed to be a prank on someone he knew working at the Wendy's.

The alligator was safely released into a nearby bayou.
