Man Accused Of Throwing 13-Foot-Long Python At LA Diners

LOS ANGELES (KDKA) -- Police in Los Angeles say a man has been arrested after people eating at a restaurant say he threw a python at them.

According to CBS Los Angeles, people at the sushi spot said the man had shown the 13-foot-long snake to kids outside the building just before he threw it at customers.

According to employees, the man showed a smaller snake to patrons who asked that he take it away. Then, he allegedly came back angry and with a much larger snake in tow.

That's when witnesses say he screamed obscenities and threw the snake down, prompting customers to run away.

Animal Control took the snake away. No one was reportedly hurt.
