People do regrettable things after they’ve had a few too many. Dwayne Matthews has found himself with a handful after buying a stolen 10ft python.
According to the UK’s Metro, the Coventry man bought Bruce the python from a gypsy after a night of heavy drinking. The next morning, Matthews awoke to see the 10ft python trying to make a meal of his sleeping friend.
He threw a blanket over the python and put it in a cage to take to a pet shop and sell it to fund his gutter business. However, Bruce was recognized as one of nine snakes that had been stolen. He was arrested for possessing stolen goods with intent to sell.
