AP reports that a Port Orange Florida Man accused of hitting woman with gator:
A man hit his girlfriend [Nancy Monico, 39] with a 3-foot alligator and threw beer bottles at her during an argument in the couple's mobile home, authorities said.
David Havenner, 41, was scheduled for a bond hearing Saturday on misdemeanor charges of battery and possession of an alligator.
Note that Mr. Havenner is not charged with assault with a deadly weapon, and Ms. Monico only says the gator “hit” her not “bit” her. No, the biting comes later in the story:
Havenner's version of the story differed. He told investigators that Monico bit his hand because she was upset that they had run out of alcohol.
