Florida Man Goes to Jail Over Gator Tail
According to the Palm Beach Post, an Orlando man is in jail after being caught with a 50 inch alligator tail. Jason Brewer faces several felony charges related to the poaching.
An Orlando man accused Tuesday of illegally cutting off a 50-inch alligator tail told deputies he hacked it with a knife kept in his Taco Bell pants. After reading Brewer his Miranda rights, he told the deputy he had earlier parked at the St. Johns River near State Road 50, according to his arrest report. Brewer spotted a gator along the river bank and struck it in the head with a large piece of wood.
