A Florida man hurled a poisonous snake into his ex's friend's truck in a jealous rage, police said.

Clay Charles Hickenbotam, of DeFuniak Springs, Fla., allegedly showed up at his ex-girlfriend's house on July 15 to threaten her and her male guest.

After he tried to no avail to break into the house, he broke a porch light — and then tossed a live water moccasin into the guest's vehicle, according to the Walton County Sheriff's Office.

The Northwest Florida Daily News reported that he was charged with misdemeanor assault and felony throwing a deadly missile (e.g., the snake) — plus criminal mischief and trespassing.
