Assault and Battery, Weapon Type: Other (4-foot python)

This entry was posted by Rob on Wednesday, 14 April, 2010 at

29-year-old Tony Smith was arrested last night for assault and battery at a hotel in Rock Hill, SC. Apparently the victim of the assault, 47-year-old Jeffery Culp had asked the suspect to turn down the loud music in his room previously that night. Words were exchanged and eventually turned into Culp getting smacked across the face with the head of Smith’s 4-foot python. (Snake whipped?)

When the cops showed up, Smith was found on the balcony still holding the weapon in question, his pet snake in his arms. I’m sure the snake wasn’t too happy being used as a blunt striking weapon. Can you give snakes aspirin for headaches?

Smith handed off the snake to a family member and was arrested. The police report classified the weapon type as Other. I suppose they don’t get snake assaults often enough to warrant that specific of a weapon type as a common listing…

It was not reported if the victim was actually injured during the attack or otherwise traumatized by the incident. It was also not reported what kind of music was blasting in the room in question? Perhaps some old school Whitesnake?

  1. Ha. I wonder if animal rights groups will be involved in this.
