MUSCASTINE, Iowa (AP) — A Muscatine man is being accused of having too many bullfrogs.

Twenty-six-year-old Bradley Honts has been charged with 12 counts of taking and possessing bullfrogs without a valid fishing license while being under suspension and 15 counts of taking and having possession of bullfrogs over the legal daily bag limit while under suspension.

The Iowa Department of Natural Resources suspended Honts' fishing privileges for three years in 2007 after he was convicted of five violations involving sport turtle trapping.

The daily bag limit for bullfrogs in Iowa is 12 and a sport fishing license is required to take or possess bullfrogs.

Honts was arrested Saturday and taken to jail. He faces fines totaling $2,700.
