ST. TAMMANY PARISH, LA (WVUE) -

St. Tammany Parish sheriff’s deputies need your help finding a perpetrator who intimidated a driver early Tuesday morning.

Officers were dispatched to Hwy. 190 near Fountainbleau State Park around 4 a.m. after the victim said an alligator refused to move for passing vehicles.

Sara Poynot called 911 to report the incident.

“When the gator realized Ms. Poynot called STPSO, he fled on foot into a nearby marshy area,” the sheriff’s department said. “The gator is now wanted for questioning about the incident and may face charges if caught!”
