gator main

On Thursday (December 17), Cleveland SWAT members visited the home of a man who trapped himself inside his house when Fifth District officers responded to a call for some sort of domestic incident. 

The story took a turn for the crazy when SWAT members discovered a six-foot-long alligator living inside the house. SWAT Sgt. Jose Delgado captured the gator with the use of a dog pole and the animal was taken to Animal Control.

As for the suspect? Well, he was arrested and charged with Domestic Violence and Unlawful Possession of An Exotic Animal. To learn more about Cleveland's WTAM click here
