Gator Update (Naked Gator Wrangler Edition)

Man in Gator Case Held for Failing to Report | "Adrian Apgar, the infamous naked gator wrangler, was arrested Monday and charged with failing to report for a scheduled court date.

Apgar, 47, was being held at the Polk County Jail on Tuesday night with a bail set at $1,500.

He was originally charged with trespassing, exposure of sexual organs and breach of the peace in March when deputies found him scratched up, naked and wading toward an alligator in a pond at Saddle Creek Park in Lakeland.

But that wasn't Apgar's first run-in with the reptiles.

In November 2006, the same deputies rescued Apgar from the jaws of an alligator in Lake Parker. That gator wrangle left him with a partially amputated arm. The gator also took out several chunks from his side and buttocks."
