Florida makes the news again when a woman with a bag full of turtles yanked a one foot alligator from her yoga pants during a police traffic stop. Her name is Ariel Machan-Le Quire and she has been sentenced to probation after she pleaded guilty to four charges involving the illegally possessed wild animals.
The prosecutors in Florida reported that "a Charlotte County sheriff’s deputy stopped a pickup truck in May after it ran a stop sign. The driver, 22-year-old driver Michael Clemons, told the deputy he and his 25-year-old passenger, Ariel Machan-Le Quire, were collecting frogs and snakes under an overpass. He gave the deputy permission to search bags in the truck."
To make the case more interested, the deputy found "41 3-stripe turtles in a “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle” backpack, he asked if Machan-Le Quire had anything else. She pulled the 1-foot gator from her pants."
The case is pending, according to Kron4.
