New Way To Solve Conflict: Threaten Someone With A Python

A 29-year-old man named Tony Smith is facing assault and battery charges after he responded to requests to turn his music down by shoving his python in another man’s face. “He had the snake’s head squeezed so its mouth was open. He ran it across my face and it tried to crawl in my mouth,” the horrified victim said. The 4-foot python bit the victim’s lip while he was standing outside the hotel with his family. Earlier, he had asked Smith to turn his music down so he could go to sleep. Smith knew he was afraid of snakes and obviously feels pretty strongly about blasting his tunes. I guess that’s one way to go about solving conflicts. [BBC]
