Florida woman pulls alligator out of trousers during traffic stop

Alligator

It was no ordinary traffic stop for deputies Monday morning in Charlotte County, Florida.

Cops in Florida found a woman with a baby alligator hidden in her yoga trousers and dozens of tiny turtles in her purse when she was pulled over with a man in a pick-up truck Monday, police said. While the alligator was the only reptile she pulled from her trousers, it wasn't alone in her vehicle.

Deputies then asked to check on the wildlife they collected to ensure it was legal. The woman opened her backpack revealing 42 small three-striped mud turtles and one softshell turtle.

The male driver told officers he and his female passenger were trying to collect some frogs and snakes from under an overpass.

What is the theme of the 2019 Met Gala?
This year, the exhibit and gala are dedicated to the idea of 'camp, ' as defined by Susan Sontag's 1964 essay Notes on 'Camp '. The night of the Met Gala , when the stars arrive, Vogue will stream the carpet on Instagram Live.

The Charlotte County Sheriffs Office made an interesting discovery after a traffic stop on Oil Well Road. The alligator was about one foot long.

Both kinds of turtles and the alligator are native to the area but regulated, so deputies called the Florida Fish Wildlife and Conservation Commission at 3:50 a.m.to help out, reports NBC2.

As of Monday evening, it's unclear if Clemons or Machan-Le Quire are facing charges, the Miami Herald reports.

On Facebook the sheriff's office posited that the alligator incident marked the rise of a new crime mascot: Florida Woman. The critters have since been seized and released back into the wild.
