A man is facing charges and making history for an incident at a Florida alligator farm.
Brandon Hatfield of Green Cove Springs was arrested yesterday for breaking into the St. Augustine Alligator Farm Zoological Park. In addition to causing thousands of dollars worth of damage, police say the 23-year-old also jumped into the alligator pond, where he was bitten. Surveillance cameras caught him repeatedly jumping into the gator pit.
He's expected to survive, but an official with the farm says it's the first time in their 125 years that someone actually tried to swim with the gators.
