Gator's not on the menu at Wendy's but it did show up inside at least one location recently. Last October a Florida man with a vendetta threw a three-and-a-half foot long alligator through the drive-thru window of a Wendy's restaurant just east of Palm Beach. Yesterday, 23-year-old Joshua James was arrested at his home for the incident, which was documented by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. According to police records, he was changed with second degree petty theft (of the reptile, which he had picked up off the side of the road earlier that day), possession and injury of an alligator, and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon without intent to kill. He's being held on a $3,000 bond.
