A speed bump with bite startles Texans


The Star-Ledger

SAN ANTONIO, Tex. — All it takes is one illegally parked troublemaker to tie up freeway traffic - especially if it's an 8-foot alligator sprawled across the pavement.

"I don't remember any of this in the academy," police officer Albert Silva said of the traffic jam early Sunday. "As far as I know, there's no procedure on this other than: `Don't get bit.'"

Police car sirens didn't persuade the big reptile to budge off Loop 410.
