ST. JOHN’S COUNTY • ST. AUGUSTINE, FLORIDA (FOX NEWS) – McGruff wasn’t around, so a hungry crocodile had to do.

A 9-foot Florida croc took a literal bite out of crime, chomping on the foot of a half-naked man who broke into the crocodile’s exhibit in order to go for a swim — a bizarre sequence of events that was caught on video.

Brandon Keith Hatfield, 23, was charged Wednesday after he allegedly broke into an exhibit at St. Augustine’s Alligator Farm Zoological Park the night before, took a dive into the crocodile exhibit and caused more than $5,000 worth of damage, police said.

Workers at the farm were baffled early Wednesday when they discovered a trail of blood on a platform, along with a pair of shorts and, fittingly, a single Croc shoe floating in a crocodile pit, Action News Jax reported.

The bizarre scene prompted them to search their surveillance video where they discovered an equally unusual sequence of events.
