Dwayne Matthews of Willenhall, England, woke to find the 14kg snake attempting to make a lunge at his friend. Matthews reportedly bought the snake when drunk from a gypsy with the intent to sell and make a profit to fund a guttering business.

However, when he took the snake to a local reptile shop, he was soon accused of receiving stolen goods.

Mitigator Richard Baker said: “He apprehended the snake. He ran upstairs, got a quilt and threw it over the snake to subdue it and put it back in the tank. It was like a sub-plot from a Guy Ritchie film.”

Police later found that the snake, named Bruce, was one of nine reptiles stolen from David Chance. Matthews has been given an eight-week prison sentence suspended for two years, ordered to pay £165 and have eight weeks’ supervision.
