The cops in Punta Gorda, Florida pulled over a car around 3:30 A.M. on Monday for blowing a stop sign. A 22-year-old guy named Michael Clemons was driving and a 25-year-old woman named Ariel Machan-Le Quire was in the passenger seat.
They let the cops search their car, and the cops found a bag with 41 small turtles inside. Then the cops asked if they had anything else. And Ariel reached into her yoga pants . . . and pulled out a foot-long BABY ALLIGATOR.
Michael and Ariel said they had been collecting animals under an overpass, but they violated the bag limits for reptiles, so they got citations. All the reptiles were seized by police and released.
