Local News

CHATHAM COUNTY, Ga. (WSAV) — A couple of Chatham County officers had their hands full as they wrangled an alligator off Highway 80 Saturday morning.

The duo, Lt. Bill Sharpley and Sgt. John Woodcock, improvised by using a tape measure to lasso the gator’s body.

The gator wasn’t too happy with their efforts. It started rolling, chomping and hissing at the two officers.

Despite the resistance, the gator was returned to the water safely.
