Man Throws Snake

Man throws snake into crowded bar

An Idaho man has been charged with felony assault with a deadly weapon for allegedly throwing a rattlesnake into a crowded bar.  Police say he walked into an Idaho Falls bar on Monday, pulled a three-and-a-half-foot-long rattler from his pocket and threw it into a crowd.

Bar patrons used a crutch to sweep the angry snake to a cleared area, and then wrapped a T-shirt around its head before picking it up and dropping it into a bucket. No one was hurt.

If convicted, the man could face up to five years in prison.
