Man Throws Alligator Into Wendy’s Drive-Thru


Man Throws Alligator Into Wendy’'s Drive-Thru ( 4UMF NEWS ) Man Throws Alligator Into Wendy’s Drive-Thru: Video of a Florida man’s notorious prank — tossing an alligator into a Wendy’s drive-thru — surfaced on Thursday. The gator raider’s stunt landed him in jail in February, after he chucked the reptile through the window, terrifying the drive-thru employee at the Royal Palm Beach Wendy’s. The video, obtained by the Smoking Gun, showed the alleged suspect, Joshua James, launching the 3 1/2-foot alligator inside the Wendy’s as the employee turned around to get him his change at about 1:30 a.m. A second video, pulled from Facebook, showed the cold-blooded prankster letting an alligator bite down on his forearm. “Oh s---, get it off, oh f---, oh my god,” he could be heard yelling in the video. “He’s tearing the skin.” The clip showed his friends prying the alligator’s jaw open with a screwdriver to break its vise-like grip. James, 24, said he found the alligator off the side of a road shortly before the prank. The throw, he said, was intended as a joke on his friend, who worked at the restaurant. Since then, he’s been banned from all Wendy’s — and animals other than his family dog — by a Palm Beach County judge. Authorities charged him with assault with a deadly weapon, illegally possessing an alligator and petty theft. Source
