Gator chomps down on Louisiana deputy’s car

Top Stories

So apparently “taking a bite out of crime” means something different in Louisiana.

At least it did to one gator.

A Caddo Parish deputy spotted an alligator in the middle of Hwy1 Monday night and tried to wrangle the 8-foot beast out of the roadway while waiting for wildlife officials to come and remove it.

But the gator was not having it.

The crotchety critter got a bit snappish and did what gators do – it chomped down on the patrol car and proceeded to take a bite out of crime … stoppers. Or at least the crimestoppers’ vehicle.

Thankfully, no one was injured in the altercation.

And the toothy perp made a clean getaway.
