FRAMINGHAM, Mass.(WPRI) — A Warwick man was arrested on Saturday after police said he was showing exotic animals at an event in Framingham, Mass.

Officials say they were tipped off about a man who was charging to take pictures with an alligator, a python and tarantulas at Super Megafest Comic-con.

The 41-year-old suspect, whose name is not being released at this time, was arrested on an outstanding warrant by Framingham police. He was also issued a summons for a wildlife violation.

The Environmental Police have since confiscated those animals.
