Boa Constrictor Slithers from Chair

RICHMOND, VA (WTVR) - Be careful what you buy secondhand, because you never know what is lurking inside.


A Richmond, Virginia man learned that lesson early Wednesday morning when a snake apparently slithered out of a chair he received nearly a week earlier.


Barrett Edwards tells CBS 6 he was in bed watching TV inside his Dill Avenue home Wednesday morning when he got up to use the bathroom.


Upon exiting the bathroom he saw a boa constrictor coiled up atop a bathroom vent. "I turned around and there was a snake right there," Edwards says.


Edwards says watched the snake for a couple of minutes to figure out what he was going to do. He then called for his mother, ran downstairs and called 911.


Richmond Police officers arrived at the home and put the snake in a pillow case.


Police believe the snake had been hiding in the coils of a chair a friend of Edwards recently gave him.


Police returned the snake, named Buddy, to its owner who says he plans on returning it to a pet store.


In Virginia it is a Class 2 misdemeanor to allow a reptile that is not native to the Commonwealth to escape.


Richmond Police say they don't plan to file any charges in this case.



Cops busted a guy at Jensen Beach, FL for DUI when he tried to light his hearing aid...


Apparently, he thought it was a cigarette.


When the cop walked up he could smell alcohol on the 53-year-old man and called another officer to run a DUI test.


That's when he noticed the guy was trying to light his hearing aid. When the cop asked him what he was doing he said he was trying to light a cigarette.


He admitted to drinking "way too much" Jagermeister.


His blood alcohol was over 3 times the legal limit. He was arrested for DUI.






A man in Lorain County, Ohio called 911 after being out all night drinking... and provided updates on his whereabouts to police.


The 34 year old fella first called to let officers know he was walking west on his way home. He called two more times while officers were on their way to get him.


When police showed up, they found him propped up against a wall.


He told officers that he and a friend had drank a fifth of Jägermeister and the friend had passed out in a truck somewhere so he decided he would walk home. He also explained that he had a 9PM curfew and that his father wouldn't let him in the house after that time. The police let him know he had been all night and it was 6AM.


Then, they arrested him.
