PALM CITY, Florida (AP). Police say they have are in the process of arresting an Florida man for provoking an alligator of a small size to bite his hands and put beer in the mouth of the animal.

News sources say that 27-year old Timothy Kapke and 22-year-old Noah Osborne were arrested last week with unlawful use of an alligator.

Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation officers initiated their investigation back in the month of August after an inquiry from Osborne who had snagged the alligator at Palm City and turned over to Cap. The cap is shown in the video that allows it to bite the animal’s forearm. The video also includes footage of Kepke eating the alligator beer as the reptile fights.
