Assault With a Deadly Snake

IDAHO FALLS, Idaho (AP) 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 3-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.,2933,122876,00.html
