Alligator Ticketed In Golden Meadow Speed Trap

Golden Meadow, LA – Golden Meadow Police claim to have clocked a nine-foot alligator traveling 36 MPH in a 35 MPH zone along Highway 3235.

Witnesses say the gator was simply scampering across the road to avoid traffic; however, Officer Walt Cheramie issued the reptile tickets for multiple infractions, including speeding, no proof of insurance, and not having any tags.

Officer Cheramie explained:

Just because a gator is ignorant of the law doesn’t mean he is exempt from it. If the gator wants to fight his ticket, he needs to show up in court and plead his case; however, it’s going to be my word against his, and I think we all know how that’s going to go. This is Golden Meadow. Oh, and he better wear a shirt, or the judge will find him in contempt. We’re trying to enforce that rule this year.

The total cost of the tickets came out to $936.45, and the gator’s court date is scheduled for April 11th, 2016. Even though it is scientifically documented that an alligator’s top speed is around 25 MPH, many people are telling the gator it’s easier to just pay the fine and stay out of Golden Meadow forever.
