OMRO, Wisconsin (KMSP) - A driver in Wisconsin discovered a reptile to blame for her car trouble.
The woman and her son were driving in Omro, Wisconsin when they pulled over and looked under the hood.
Inside, they found a four-foot python that had wrapped itself around the car's engine.
She called police and police called Steve Keller, dubbed the "snake man."
Keller has rescued hundreds of snakes over the years, and says this one was a ball python that was probably drawn to the heat.
It took several hours to unwind the snake from the engine.
The snake had escaped from its owner more than a month ago.
Unfortunately for the owner, it's illegal to own a ball python in Omro, earning him a more than $300 fine.
