LOS ANGELES (WCMH) – Diners at a Los Angeles sushi restaurant had a bit of a surprise Tuesday when a man brought two snakes, including a 13-foot python into the restaurant.
According to NBC Los Angeles, Hiroshi Motohashi, 46 started to show off a small snake inside the Iroha Sushi of Tokyo in Studio City.
After customers complained, employees demanded he take the snake out of the restaurant.
Instead of simply leaving, Motohashi returned with a 13-foot long Burmese python.
The snake owner said, “[Expletive], you guys,” then dropped the larger snake in the middle of the restaurant floor and walked out, Los Angeles Police Lt. Jim Gavin told the Los Angeles Times.
By the time employees called 911, the python had gotten itself stuck behind a computer in the dining room.
Firefighters eventually had to pry the snake out from the computer cabinet.
Motohashi was arrested on a charge of suspicion of making criminal threats, a felony. His bond was set at $50,000.THE STORIES OTHERS ARE CLICKING ON:
