Reports state that the man claimed he knew how to handle snakes and they asked him to place the creature into the backseat of the patrol car. Jacksonville Beach police were able to capture a picture of the snake on social media and shared that it was eight feet long.
Sgt. Larry Smith of the Jacksonville Beach Police Department said, “Sounded like he may have been doing a little show and tell down there with the snake. He says that he found it and God compelled him to keep him safe from traffic.”
The rattlesnake was taken by a trapper from Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission and will be relocated.
