Deputy McGregor on wrestling alligator: I had to do something right then

Lake County Sheriff's deputy Jessica McGregor says it's all in a day's work.

Last Tuesday, she found herself up against a 7-foot alligator while conducting her regular patrol duty at a middle school in Clermont, Fla.

Classes were about to dismiss, so Deputy McGregor decided for the student's safety to wrestle the alligator herself.

This morning on "Starting Point," McGregor explains her decision to make a move on the animal, and how her childhood prepared her for the challenge.
