Joshua James, 24, was taken into custody on this morning and charged using deadly weapons, without the intention to kill following Florida Fish and Wildlife officials claimed he threw a 3.5-foot alligator through Wendy’s driveway windows in October , in Palm Beach County. James is also accused of unlawful holding of an alligator, as well as small theft. Prison records indicate that the man was released in a $6,000 bail bond on Tuesday. He was told not to speak with animals.
The Wildlife Conservation Officer Nicholas Guerin said in his report that James drove his pickup up to the window about 1:20 am on the morning of October 11. When the employee gave James drinks, the man then threw the alligator out of the window and then left. No harm done. Guerin captured the alligator and released him. Guerin claimed James was located using video surveillance and went shopping at a nearby retailer.
Guerin said that James admitted to dumping the alligator during an interview back in the month of December. He claimed that James claimed that he had found an alligator in the middle of the road, and then put it inside his truck.

James P. Ross, retired scientist from James P. Ross, a retired scientist with the Department of Ecology and Wildlife at the University of Florida, said that the 3.5-foot alligator could weigh between 20 and 30 pounds. Its solid body may suffer a major blow when it comes into contact with anyone who could take a hit.
A bite from an alligator could be similar with a bite from a dog but likely to not cause serious injuries or break a finger, but it could cause tearing of the tendons. One of the most significant concerns is the possibility of infection if the bite is not treated the doctor said.
“It is not likely that an alligator would “attack anyone and will likely find itself in scared and traumatized defense,” he said. “He might, and probably will, snap and throw at anyone that comes close to him. He may even stick his jaws and head 12-18 inches from any direction.”
