Joe Exotic’s lawyers have a “limousine fueled up” ahead of pardon verdict

“We are ready for the party"

Tiger King star Joe Exotic is allegedly set to be driven away from prison in a stretch-truck limousine if Donald Trump pardons him.

Following the news that Trump will be granting over 100 pardons and commutations on the last day of his presidency, Exotic’s legal team have said they are confident he will be released.

Private investigator Eric Love, who is the head lawyer on Exotic’s case, told The Sun that “Team Tiger” is so confident that Exotic will be pardoned that a stretch-truck limousine has been booked to take him to a secret location upon release.

Exotic is currently serving a 22-year sentence for plotting to kill Big Cat Rescue owner Carole Baskin, and other animal cruelty charges.

“We have the limousine fueled up and driver standing by,” Mr Love told the publication. “We are ready for the party.”

Love also told Metro that he is so sure that Trump will pardon Exotic as he believes the outgoing president is on their side.

“I think the president has sided with us and I believe it will take most of the limelight away from president-elect Joe Biden,” he said.

“Last night, I shot a congratulatory video thanking Donald Trump so we have it queued up and ready to go.”

Joe Exotic had previously reached out to Kim Kardashian last December for legal help, saying “I do believe that you hold the values of our justice system dear to your heart.”
