Man Known for Deadly Roach Incident Charged With Lizard Battery

Okay then:

A Florida reptile store owner made notorious after a man died during a 2012 insect-eating contest at the business is behind bars after he smacked employees with a bearded dragon lizard and even put it in his mouth during a bizarre attack, police said.

The charges include battery (by lizard) and animal cruelty (battery of lizard). At press time the fate of the lizard was not yet known.
