A man in Florida was arrested for picking magic mushrooms in a national park, possession of weed...and having an alligator in his backpack. Only in fucking Florida could something that is simultaneously this weird, stupid, and white trash happen. Rick Myers and his face tattoos went to Little Econ State Forest to go shrooming. The psychedelic mushrooms grow in the swamp's mud and animal shit. Many Floridians pick the mushrooms when they get tired of smoking meth all the time. The weirdest part is that he had tied up a two foot alligator in his backpack with a bandana. Why? He wanted to take a picture of it. Why he couldn't have taken the photo of the gator in his natural habitat is unknown. Maybe he wanted to take the gator home and dress him up like a cowboy or ballerina and have a real photoshoot? We may never know.

The gator was released back into the swamp and Myers was charged with drug possession, possession of an alligator, and probation violation. Yes, possession of an alligator is a crime in Florida. Probably to prevent the reptiles from getting loose in the sewers and turning into giant killer gators.
