Crocodile 'arrested' in Australia
An aggressive crocodile was "arrested" and spent a night behind bars in a remote Australian police station after lunging at a group of fishermen, media reported Friday.

The recreational anglers were hauling their boat up a ramp at the Nhulunbuy Yacht Club late on Thursday afternoon when the crocodile "had a go at them", the national AAP news agency reported.

They alerted police in the small mining town on the Gove Peninsular east of Darwin and warnings were broadcast on local radio until the reptile was captured by Parks and Wildlife officers.

It was put in a cell in the Nhulunbuy police station for the night and was due to be released later Friday and moved to a nearby crocodile farm, police said.

5. Did they arrest the croc for terrorism?
Was he allowed a phone call? Did they have a trial or just put him in "jail" without a trial?
