In October last year, 23 year old Joshua James pulled up to a Wendy’s drive-thru in Royal Palm Beach in Florida. After the server delivered his order, he reached into the back of his truck and threw a three and a half photo alligator into the drive-thru window.

It may have happened several months ago, but US Marshalls have just arrested him after tracking him down via a receipt for a drink he bought in the restaurant. Local News station WPTV tracked down his parents, who were obviously pissed at their son for acting like such a f*cking idiot. His mum told the channel that she thought it was a prank he was playing on someone he knew that worked at the Wendy’s and also that James’ idol was The Crocodile Hunter Steve Irwin .

And in case you’re worrying about the gator, it’s ok. He was safely returned to the wild.
