DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. - A man who swung an alligator at his girlfriend during an argument was sentenced to six months in jail.

David Havenner, 41, of Port Orange, pleaded no contest to misdemeanor charges of battery and possession of an alligator, said Linda Pruitt, spokeswoman for the State Attorney's Office. He changed his earlier plea of not guilty, she said Wednesday.

He was sentenced to six month in jail with 48 days credit for time served during the Sept. 1 hearing, according to court records.

Sheriff's officials said Havenner was keeping the 3-foot gator in his bathtub and swung it at his girlfriend, Nancy Monico, 39, during an argument on July 16.

Monico told investigators that Havenner beat her with his fists, then grabbed the gator and swung it at her as she tried to escape. The gator struck Monico at least once, after which time Havenner threw empty beer bottles at her and then kicked her out of their mobile home, she told investigators.

Havenner told investigators that Monico bit his hand because she was upset that they had run out of alcohol.

The alligator was later released into the St. Johns River, wildlife commission officials said.

Scratch out "week" and replace it with "month"

He bitch-slapped her with an alligator?

Is it wrong that I think that's awesome?

They need a fighting game with rednecks for ps2 or some shit, I would like to see how a fight would stack up with a Redneck 40 year old lady who uses her saggy Vagina as a weapon, go after a guy and his 6 pack of Hamms and an alligator

Or maybe they could tackle it on "Animal Face-Off" on Animal Planet.

When I was a kid, we couldn't afford an alligator. My dad had to hit my mom with cockroaches.

I'm surprised they didn't charge him with animal cruelty for keeping the gator in a white-trash trailer park bathroom. The gator should have at least gotten some therapy before being released.
