Drunk driver with snake round her neck causes mayhem

Snakes alive! A New York woman who crashed her car into a firehouse with a stolen python wrapped around her neck, faces charges of reckless endangerment and larceny.

Drink driver Sarah Espinosa, 22, from Albany, plowed through the garage door of the New Hyde Park Fire House, damaging two fire engines, the Nassau County Police Department said in a statement.

"Fire personnel who were present at the time of the accident rendered aid to the victim, at which time they discovered a small ball python snake wrapped around the defendant's neck," police said.

Police were not sure if the snake had been strangling Espinosa and caused her to crash, or if her driving was impaired by intoxication.

Espinosa is accused of stealing the snake from a nearby PETCO store before the crash.

The snake has been returned to the pet shop.
