Chicago Dude Arrested For Having Pet Alligator, Said He Had The Alligator Because "Chicks Dig It" | Sharapova's Thigh

Dewayne Yarbrough, 43, was arrested Thursday at his home in the 800 block of East 11th Place after the Cook County Sheriff’s animal crimes unit received a tip about Yarbrough keeping the American alligator at his home, according to a news release from the sheriff’s office.

He faces a misdemeanor charge of possession of a dangerous animal.

Officers obtained a search warrant for Yarbrough’s home and found the alligator in the kitchen there on Thursday, police said.

The alligator is about 4 feet long -- alligators often are as long as 14 feet -- and Yarbrough told investigators he only fed the animal 10 live mice once a month and kept it in a small fish tank to keep down its size, according to the news release.

Yarbough told police he kept the animal because “chicks dig it,” according to police. Yarbrough bought the animal for $200 in Indiana five years ago, according to the release.

Alright, I don't even care about the arrest and all that junk. Weird news, hilarious explanation for having the alligator, blah blah blah blah blah blah.

What I want to know is if my man Dewayne here is correct. I mean, do chicks really dig pet alligators? I just always assumed they liked dogs or other cute animals, not ferocious fuckers from the swamp that may bite your face off.

Aside from wanting a dog because they are absolutely awesome, I've also wanted one so I can take it for a walk and have girls come flying at me(and by me I mean the dog, but then the conversation with the girls naturally follows). But is a pet alligator more likely to cause such a situation?

On the other hand, the ladies love something unique about guys, and last I checked, having a pet alligator is pretty damn unique. Additionally, showing you can handle an alligator living in your house shows that you're quite a fearless badass, something the ladies also love. So maybe Dewayne is right after all.

Also, you can get an alligator, in Indiana, for just $200?
