A man was arrested, charged and convicted of provoking behavior after pulling out a live snake from his pocket to scare a teen girl on the street, prosecutors in the United Kingdom said.

Now, 66-year-old Andrew Fielding of Douglas, has been sentenced to serve 8 weeks in jail after pleading guilty to provoking behavior.

According to the police investigation, Fielding approached the teenager in the Villa Marina Gardens in the early hours of the morning and asked her if she can promise him not to scream.

When she promised to stay quiet, Fielding pulled a live snake from his pocket and showed it to the horrified girl. In court, Fielding said that he usually leaves his snake at home, but some time it crawls into his pocket.

Prosecutors said that the incident happened just two weeks after Fielding was fined 400 pounds ($625) for a similar incident.
