Wallace Weatherholt is an airboat captain. He was giving tourists an airboat tour and tried to feed an alligator. That was when the gator bit his hand off.
It is illegal to feed alligators and now Weatherholt faces charges for unlawful feeding.
Airboat captains can lose their license or a fine for feeding alligators. However, Weatherholt is looking at 6 months in jail plus a fine.
