CORAL SPRINGS, Fla. – A 4-foot-long snake slithered out of a toilet and bit a Coral Springs man during the Memorial Day weekend, police said.

Paramedics arrived and treated Jimeno for the snake bite.

Police said the snake wasn't poisonous.

The Coral Springs Humane Unit took possession of the snake.
