BRIDGEPORT, Conn. — Bridgeport police said they arrested a city man after he ordered his pet to attack two officers.
Lucky for them, 9-foot-long pythons aren’t very obedient.
Police Lt. James Viadero said 21-year-old Victor Rodriguez was charged with threatening police and disorderly conduct after Monday’s incident. No one was hurt.
Officers were called to Rodriguez’s apartment on a report that he was going after his girlfriend with the pet reptile.
When the building superintendent opened the apartment door for the officers, Rodriguez allegedly told the snake, “Get them!”, according to Viadero.
Rodriguez and his pet were both taken away: Rodriguez to jail on a $10,000 bond, and the albino python to the city’s animal control shelter.
