Tiny gator nicknamed 'Jimmy' fished from pool

- A two-foot-long baby alligator was fished out of a Winter Haven pool Thursday afternoon. 

The pool belonged to Carrie Horstman, the public information officer of the Polk County Sheriff's Office, who tweeted video of her husband fishing the tiny gator out of the pool. 

The gator, nicknamed "Jimmy," was put into a little cooler and returned to Lake Summit, where it quickly scurried away.
