Wendy's: the home of spicy chicken nuggets, creamy baked potatoes and terrifying Florida alligators.

In October, a man, believed to be 23-year-old Joshua James, pulled up to a Wendy's drive-thru window in Jupiter, Florida. But instead of asking for more napkins or extra ketchup, he did the unthinkable: he threw a living alligator through the drive-thru window, according to WPTV.

While the crime happened almost six months ago, U.S. Marshals just captured him this week, local news station WPTV reports. The alligator in question was reported to be approximately 3-and-a-half feet long.

James admitted that he picked up the alligator on the side of a road and took it to Wendy's, according the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.

The alligator was later released into a nearby canal. James faces charges of aggravated assault, as well as as illegal possession and transportation of an alligator.
