Deputies from the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office (HCSO) encountered an unusual roadblock in the form of a 9-foot alligator.

The encounter with the gator happened on Wednesday morning. It led to deputies having to contact the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission for backup.

Deputy body cam video shows a deputy approaching the gator who is just lying in the roadway.

"You just taking a nap?" the deputy can be heard asking the gator. "Oh, hi big boy," the deputy continues.

The video continues to show deputies and officers from FWC wrangling the gator before they load it into a truck.

Deputies say the gator was moved to a safe location.
