Palm City: Florida resident Timothy Kepke was arrested after a video leaked online of him pouring beer into an alligator’s mouth. The man was also reportedly bitten by an animal.
A few minutes earlier, Kepke had told police that 22-year-old Noah Osborne had caught an alligator with his bare hands. After a beer-feeding that was recorded, the duo released the animal back into the wild.
The man told police that although he and a friend drank several bottles of beer that day, he claimed that they were not intoxicated at the time of the incident. The police somehow managed to get hold of the private video and then went to the man’s house to question him. Soon after, he confessed to the crime.
Both Timothy Kepke and Noah Osborne were arrested on October 3 and charged with illegal alligator kidnapping.
