PAINESVILLE, OH (1010 WINS) -- In Ohio, a 49-year-old man who had a dispute with the manager of a restaurant did what anyone would do in such a situation. He reached under his shirt and pulled out an iguana, swung it around, and hurled it at the manager.


Cops say it happened at a Perkins in Painesville.

The alleged iguana tosser has been charged with resisting arrest, disorderly conduct, and animal cruelty.

It's still unclear what prompted the incident.

The animal has been taken to Lake County Humane Society to be checked by a veterinarian.
