Florida man arrested for attacking alligator he stole from mini-golf course to ‘teach it a lesson’

(The AEGIS Alliance) – Police arrested a Florida man on a number of charges after he purportedly assaulted an alligator he stole from a Daytona Beach mini-golf course on Wednesday evening.

William “Bubba” Hodge had been observed lugging an alligator on Wednesday evening down Florida State Road A1A, the Daytona Beach Shores Department of Public Safety said.

Hodge purportedly made an effort to toss the alligator onto the rooftop of a company in Daytona Beach Shores, and afterward pounded the creature on the ground while holding onto its tail, according to cops.

Hodge said to authorities he had stolen the gator from the Congo River Golf miniature-golf place following him being caught wrestling with the animal. The alligator was taken back to the mini-golf course’s management.

Hodge was jailed and is facing charges of animal cruelty, alligator poaching, theft, burglary, and also criminal mischief. Hodge was booked into the Volusia County Jail on a $4,500 bail amount.

William Hodge expressed to the cops that he was actually “teaching it a lesson,” WPTV noted about the arrest report.

The mini-golf course permits its customers the opportunity to feed the alligators as a tourist attraction.
