A police rep told reporters,"The driver allegedly armed himself with a live snake, pointed the head of the reptile at them and threatened them." They told the driver to drop the snake, but he ran away, snake in hand. This all took place Saturday in the outback Northern Territory, just outside the city of Darwin. The suspect is scheduled to appear in the Darwin Magistrates Court to answer for the drunk driving charge. We can only imagine what else they might add. Assault with a deadly venom? And how he will choose to answer to the charges. Perhaps he was really just trying to save the snake from certain harm in the roadway.
