Florida authorities have arrested a man accused of throwing a live alligator through a restaurant's drive-thru window.
Investigators identified Joshua James, of Jupiter, Florida, as the man who tossed the 3 1/2-foot reptile into a Wendy's last fall, according to a Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission incident report.
He faces three charges related to the incident: aggravated assault with a deadly weapon; unlawful sale, possession or transporting of an alligator; and petty theft. James, 24, was taken into custody and booked into the Palm Beach County Detention Center on Monday, as first reported by NBC affiliate WPTV.
The driver, wearing a backward baseball hat, arrived at the drive-thru window to receive a large drink just before 1:30 a.m. Oct. 11, according to the report's summary of surveillance footage.
