JASPER COUNTY, SC (CNN) - As wacky as it sounds, two men are in trouble for allegedly forcing an alligator to drink beer.

Investigators said the suspects posted pictures of it on Snapchat.

Officials later started receiving calls and emails, and they tracked down the two men in Jasper County.

Joseph Floyd Jr. and Zachary Brown said they found the gator while it was crossing the road.

They said they later released it into a nearby pond and the gator swam away.

The suspects are now facing harassment charges.
