One Wendy’s drive-thru server just got a very unwelcome surprise from a customer.
A man has been accused of throwing a live gator into the drive-thru window of a Wendy’s in Royal Palm Beach, Fl. while being served his food, according to WPTV, citing a Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission report.
Although the incident reportedly happened in October, a Florida man, Joshua James, was named for throwing the gator on Tuesday. Officials say the gator measured 3-and-a-half feet long.
Per the article:
The gator was reportedly healthy enough after the incident to be released into a canal near the Wendy’s.
In a Tuesday court appearance, James was ordered by a judge to remain away from Wendy’s restaurants, avoid contact with animals besides his mother’s dog, to get a mental health evaluation, and to avoid being in possession of any weapons, according to WPTV.
James’ bond has been set at $6,000.
In other Wendy’s news, the fast food chain announced plans to switch to using cage-free eggs in its products in the U.S. and Canada by 2020.
