Associated Press Release

EUFAULA, Ala. (AP) -- A Georgia man is facing a felony charge of possessing an alligator in Alabama.

Authorities say 24-year-old Kevin Davis of Georgetown, Ga., was arrested after someone saw a 3-foot-long live gator in the back of a pickup truck at an apartment complex in Eufaula.

The Dothan Eagle (http://bit.ly/1as2NGq ) reports Davis is charged with the felony offense of taking or possessing an alligator.

Davis is being held on $5,000 bond at the Barbour County Jail. Court records show he doesn't have a lawyer.

State conservation officer Joey Richardson says officers responding to a report about the animal found a live albino alligator in the truck's bed.

The man told police he wanted to show the gator to his son. Officers returned the alligator to Lake Eufaula.
