Gator gets cops in hot water

Gator You know how we love a good gator story here on the blog.

And when gator's and crime mix...even better.

Last month, three deputies in Central Florida were called to an apartment parking lot where an 8-foot gator was on the prowl.

One of the deputies may have seen a little too much alligator wrestling - he apparently threw a towel on the gator, jumped on its back and tried to go up against it.

That's when the gator bit Deputy Keith Baughman.

A second deputy, Jason Stickles, shot the alligator.

The alligator survived, until a trapper came and killed it.

The three deputies have been reprimanded for not following policy.

See the full story on Orlando's Local 6.
