Man who lost arm to gator tempts one again

March 8, 2008


— Adrian Apgar apparently didn't learn the first time what can happen when you wade naked in a Central Florida lake in the middle of the night.

Apgar, who made national news in November 2006 when Polk County deputies rescued him from the jaws of an alligator while he was naked and on drugs, has had another run-in with the law while he was apparently looking for a gator.

At about midnight Friday, Polk deputies found Apgar naked, standing in a pond at Saddle Creek Park near Lakeland, Fla., walking toward an alligator about 50 feet offshore, the Sheriff's Office just reported.

Deputies saw Apgar and were able to safely talk him out of the water.
