No snakes on this plane!

One airport passenger learned all about Miami’s increased security measures the hard way when he was trying to sneak seven exotic snakes onto a plane… in his pants, haha!

The incident happened on August 25th when security were screening passengers. It was there when the TSA officials noticed a little big extra in the passenger’s pants.

When taken for further screening, TSA officials discovered seven exotic snakes and three tortoises held in nylon bags that were concealed inside the man’s pants. The man was arrested and charged with violating the Lacey Act, which deals with imports of exotic animals. He faces a maximum of five years in jail.

It’s probably safe to say that Samuel L. Jackson was the happiest about TSA keeping the snakes off the plane.
