Police: Man told snake to 'get' officers
BRIDGEPORT, Conn. -- Police in Bridgeport say they arrested a man after he ordered his pet to attack two officers. Lucky for them, 9-foot-long pythons aren't very obedient.
Police say 21-year-old Victor Rodriguez was charged with threatening officers and disorderly conduct after Monday's incident. No one was hurt.
Police had received a report that he was threatening his girlfriend with the python.
After the building's superintendent opened the apartment door for the officers, Rodriguez allegedly threatened them with the snake and told it to "Get them!"
Rodriguez and his pet were both taken away: Rodriguez to jail on a $10,000 bond, and the reptile to the city's animal control shelter.
