Dec. 10 (UPI) -- Security cameras were rolling inside a police station in Thailand when a snake slithered into a waiting room and lunged at a man.
The video, filmed Saturday, shows the black rat snake slither through the automatic doors at the police station in northern Thailand and approaching Apichat Cheautong, 45.
The snake lunges at the man as he notices it and the serpent ends up tangled in the man's legs as he attempts to kick it away.
Cheautong catches the snake with his hands and offers it to a police officer, who waves him away toward the outside.
The man said he released the snake in some nearby bushes.
