Neigh­bors throw punches over snake’s iden­tity

The Standard Journal - - Police -

Two neigh­bors threw punches over a snake, ac­cord­ing to county po­lice depart­ment re­ports.

Of­fi­cers were called to Prior Sta­tion road on June 23 re­gard­ing a fight. Ac­cord­ing to re­ports, a man told po­lice he got into a fight with his nextdoor neighbor over dis­cus­sion of a snake.

His neighbor came to his yard while he was do­ing out­door work and wanted to show him a snake he caught the day be­fore. The man said he didn’t care to see it.

Later, a friend came over to visit and the two de­cided to see the snake. While com­ment­ing to the neighbor about the snake, a de­bate started about what type of snake it was, re­ports said. The two neigh­bors be­gan a ver­bal al­ter­ca­tion and that es­ca­lated to punches.

Nei­ther man pressed charges. Of­fi­cers told them to stay off each other’s property.
