Driver in ditch cites 'alligator'

A Texas man charged with drunk driving in Florida says he drove into a ditch because he was "distracted by an alligator in his headlights," according to this report:

He also said he'd had "six beers or so."
The first officer on scene found the man in his car in a ditch behind Walmart with his vehicle running and his tires spinning, according to his arrest report. She said it appeared he was trying to drive out of the ditch.
The 40-year-old Texas man said he'd gotten lost driving back to his hotel and drove to Walmart, where he left the roadway and ended up in the ditch.
During his conversation with the officer, the driver warned them about the lions and leopards around him and warned the officer to be careful.
