Alligator pulled from yoga pants after traffic stop in Fla

What started as a routine traffic stop ended up being one of those "only in Florida" stories.

One Florida woman has now become part of the notorious list of stories.

The 22-year-old driver Michael Clemons told authorities he and his 25-year-old passenger Ariel Machan-Le Quire were collecting frogs and snakes under an overpass, and gave the deputy permission to search bags in the truck.

Deputies stopped a pickup truck after they observed it passing through a stop sign.

They said yes. Clemons opened his bag for the deputies, which contained clothing and personal items.

It turns out the woman also had 41 three-striped mud turtles in her vehicle.

The sheriff's office said the woman was asked if she was carrying anything else, and she produced a baby alligator from inside her yoga trousers.


The deputy asked, "Do you have anything else?" before she pulled out the reptile.

The turtles and alligator were seized by deputies and released.

The couple was ultimately cited for the critters because, while they are native to Florida, they are regulated.

Due to the nature of the incident, Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation assumed the investigation.
