Domestic Dispute Leads To 4-foot Gator In NY Home

Police officers responding to a domestic dispute in an upstate New York village found something they didn't expect: a nearly 4-foot-long alligator.

Police in Endicott, just west of Binghamton, say they encountered the gator after being dispatched to a home Tuesday afternoon.

The state Department of Environmental Conservation seized the gator and hauled it away.

Police charged a 23-year-old man with criminal possession of a weapon and possessing a wild animal as a pet, a violation of state environmental conservation law.

A 39-year-old woman was charged with resisting arrest and disorderly conduct.

Both were held in the village police lockup awaiting arraignment.
