DATELINE – Mount Dora

Eugene Bozzi is a Florida Man via Philadelphia.

We can pretty much guarantee you that NOTHING Eugene encountered on the streets of Philly, or his time in the Army, prepared him for his encounter with an alligator.

The reaction of the local news anchors is almost as bizarre as Florida Man’s of attempting to corral the gator.

'Did it my own way': WESH speaks to Florida man who used trash can to trap gator in viral video

Eugene Bozzi is a military veteran and a dad. While he's only been in Florida a year, the native of Philadelphia felt an alligator's power up close."Somebody's gotta step up and do something, we all got to look out for each other right?" he told WESH 2.

And the socks/sandals is a tough look to pull off but leave it to Florida Man to rise to the fashion challenge.
