WEBBER TOWNSHIP, Mich. — An alligator was brought into custody after a chase in Lake County Saturday night.
The Lake County Sheriff’s Office says one of their patrol sergeants was stationed along US-10 when a car sped through the area in Webber Township.
When a traffic stop was attempted, the car took off and led authorities on a brief chase until the car was snared between a pair of trees near S. Forman Road, deputies explain.
We’re told the 40-year-old Oak Park man was arrested with several charges pending, along with warrants from outside the area.
Deputies say an alligator tried to elude authorities but was quickly apprehended after a brief struggle.
The sheriff’s office says the alligator, named Karen, will not be charged as she is not believed to have been a willing contributor to the incident.
