Crazed Man Damages Car Because the 'Snakes Are Coming'
Scared Twinsburg residents are woken up to a frantic man banging on their doors and car because snakes are after him
While they didn't tell him to do it, one man's irrational fear of snakes caused quite a stir at a local residence.
At 1:30 a.m. on May 7, a woman was startled awake when someone was pounding on the doors and windows of her house at the 10100 block of Ravenna Road.
Her husband turned on the outside lights to see a white male in his 20s standing on the roof of their car and running around it in circles, screaming he didn't want the snakes to get him.
When the husband yelled at the man, he rushed up to the house, demanding they let him in because he was terrified of the snakes. He told them his car ran out of gas on I-480 and he ran through the woods because the snakes were coming to get him.
Eventually he walked down the driveway and left. A police cruiser arrived 10 minutes later but the officer only turned on the spotlight and drove around the house a few times.
When police came back later that morning, they found the roof of the car was dented and the car was scratched. Neither the man nor the horde of slithering creatures was found.
