GAINESVILLE, Fla.  — An alligator invaded a romantic picnic date last week in north Florida.

This video was recorded by Taylor Forte while she was at Lake Alice with her fiancé in Gainesville.

The reptile popped out the lake and began to chow down on their Chinese food.

The couple said the ornery gator charged at them twice, but eventually they scared it back into the water, causing it to dine and dash.
