Drunk Men Go Off-roading With Dead Alligator
Jul 07 2011
HOWELL, Mich. — Authorities say three drunks stole a 14-foot flattened and preserved alligator, strapped it to a pickup truck and took it off-roading.
The Livingston County Daily Press & Argus reports that 55-year-old Douglas Ward of Linden, 60-year-old Roy Griffith of Linden and 53-year-old John Sanborn of Harrison are charged with breaking and entering.
On June 25 they stole the gator from a barn in Hartland Township, about 40 miles northwest of Detroit. Sheriff Bob Bezotte says the alligator's owner found tire tracks near his barn and followed them to a party in Deerfield Township where the men were driving their vehicles around in the mud.
Police were mum on whether the gator was muddy or not.
The men are due in Livingston County District Court July 20.
