A man who allegedly tossed a gator through a Wendy's drive-thru window has finally been taken into custody, reports ABC News

The man, Joshua James, 23, has been accused of throwing a live three-foot long alligator through a drive-thru window at his local Wendy's.

According to the Sheriff's report, James pulled up for his order, and after a server handed over his drink and turned around, he tossed the gator into the drive-through window.

While the incident happened about a year ago, the suspect was just apprehended by a US Marshall this week. Newly-obtained CCTV footage of the act led to his recent arrest.

His mother told the local TV channel WPTV that her son hurled the gator as part of a joke aimed at a friend who worked there. “He's a prankster. He does stuff like this because he thinks it is amusing”, she claims.

James faces charges of unlawful possession and transportation of an alligator and aggravated assault.
