We've seen alligators do some crazy things in Florida: one even broke into a Clearwater woman's house a couple of weeks ago!

But this may be a first as far as gator stories go.

In Louisiana's Caddo Parish, an 8-foot gator was spotted in the middle of Hwy. 1.

Deputies tried to contain it while awaiting wildlife removal experts, but the gator ultimately escaped. Before it made it's break for freedom though, the alligator took a bite out of one of the deputy's patrol cars!

There is no word on what happened to the runaway gator, or if it has tried to eat any other cars.
