So much wrong with this

Headline: Conn. police: driver blames car crash on snakes.

HARTFORD, Conn. --Police say a 20-year-old man blamed a multi-car crash in Hartford on two pet baby snakes that he says escaped from his pants pockets while he was driving.

City police Sgt. Christene Mertes says Angel Rolon of New Britain claimed he lost control of his SUV Monday when the snakes slithered near the gas and brake pedals and he and a passenger tried to catch them. Mertes says animal control officers never found the snakes.

Police say Rolon's SUV veered into some parked cars and overturned.

Rolon was treated at a hospital for unknown injuries. Police say they gave him a summons for reckless driving and other charges.

There is no public telephone listing for Rolon. It could not immediately be determined if he has a lawyer.
Wow. First off, GREAT cover story. Second, if it's true, you don't try to catch your snakes while you are in the middle of driving. And finally, if it's true, you don't keep your pet snakes in your fucking pocket as a way to transport them in the car.

When Loki is in the car with me, I don't leave him flying around the car because, get this, he could get hurt/killed, I could get hurt/killed, and other people could get hurt/killed. My car could get hurt/killed. It's common fucking sense.

There needs to be a way to charge people with being totally stupid.
