Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission spokesman Jorge Pino says the man received a citation for illegally capturing and trying to sell the gator.
The unidentified woman was spotted on a train surveillance camera holding up the small alligator while on a train bound for Chicago O'Hare International Airport on Nov. 1.
Orlando television station WKMG reports Apopka police officers tried to lure the gator away as customers gathered to watch and take pictures.
