Assault with a deadly alligator?

NC_drivethrugator0209_700x394(WPTV) A Florida man is facing a charge of assault with a deadly weapon after tossing a live alligator through a Wendy’s drive-through window.

According to Florida Fish and Wildlife officers, 24-year-old Josh James picked up a 3.5-foot alligator from the side of the road in October and put it in his pick-up truck.

He then proceeded to the window of a Wendy’s drive-through in Royal Palm Beach where he slung the gator into the restaurant.

James’ parents are defending their son.

“It was just a stupid prank that he did that’s now turning into this. He’s a prankster. He does stuff like this because he thinks it’s funny,” said mother Linda James.
