An argument between two guests at a motel in South Carolina last night resulted in one of the men being hit in the face with a snake.
Police in Rock Hill say the 47-year-old victim became embroiled in an argument with Tony Smith, 29, of Rock Hill, over loud music coming from Smith’s room at the Executive Inn.
The dispute seemed to have been settled but several hours later Smith assaulted the victim with a four-foot python, hitting him in the face with the snake’s head.
Police were called and Smith was arrested after he surrendered the snake to a family member.
He was charged with assault and battery and remains in Rock Hill jail on a bond of $1,100.
