    The Florida man who threw an alligator through a drive-thru window is now throwing himself on the mercy of the court.

    The Palm Beach Post reports that 24-year-old Joshua James agreed in court Friday to plead guilty to unspecified misdemeanor charges on May 31 and let Judge Barry Cohen decide his sentence.

    James was arrested in February on charges that he threw the 3 1/2-foot gator into a Wendy's last October. He was charged with several felonies, including assault with a deadly weapon.

    James told WPTV that he is sorry for throwing the alligator and said it was stupid stunt. He had found the gator by the side of the road.

    No one was hurt by the gator, which was captured and returned to the wild.
