SEATTLE -- Security screeners at the King County Courthouse caught a man trying to sneak in a live snake in his backpack.

The incident happened last Friday. A screener spotted the reptile on the x-ray machine when the man put his backpack through security.

A uniformed Court Marshal asked the man if he had a "pet" in his backpack, which he replied he did.  When he was told "Sorry, no pets in the courthouse," the man (and his snake) left in a huff.
