Just when you thought the Summer of Insanity in Florida was over, Florida Man Fall begins...
Authorities in Florida arrested a man for trying to get an alligator drunk. Florida Man and his friend abducted a gator from the wild, encouraged it to bite one of them on the arm, then poured beer down it's throat while it was latched onto the arm!
Timothy Kepke, 27, of the 6200 block of Southeast Croton Place in Hobe Sound and Noah Osborne, 22, of the 3000 block of South Kanner Highway in Stuart were both arrested Oct. 3 on one felony charge each of unlawfully taking an alligator.
In August, Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission got a complaint about Kepke holding an alligator and enticing the reptile to bite his right forearm and then pouring beer in the animal’s mouth. After the beer is poured, the alligator aggressively reacts. The interaction was filmed, records show.
Kepke told officers Osborne caught the reptile with his bare hands along Ranchwood Street in Palm City about 10 p.m. Aug. 26. After Osborne caught the alligator, Kepke told officers he enticed it to bite him and then poured beer into its mouth. [TC Palm]
