MERRITT ISLAND, Fla., March 26 (UPI) -- U.S. Rep. Bill Posey, R-Fla., said he was shocked to find a 6-foot alligator hiding under his car when he left a Florida church.

Posey said he was at a church in Merritt Island, Fla., when a friend told him about the reptile under his car, Central Florida News 13 reported Monday.

"Of course I had to come out and go along with the joke, and there was really a gator under my car," Posey said Sunday. "So we're waiting for the trapper. I hope he's a gator trapper and not a squirrel trapper when he finally gets here."

The trapper arrived and was able to coax the animal out from under the lawmaker's car.
