Man Claimed "Big Snake" Invited Him To Enter Neighbor’s Home At 2 AM, Cops Report

A Louisiana man busted early today for allegedly trying to enter a neighbor’s apartment at 2 AM explained to police that “a big snake told him to open the victim’s door and go inside,” according to an arrest affidavit.

On a related note, Jessie Terry, 52, also reportedly told arresting officers that he had smoked crack “within the last hour.”

Terry was collared after police responded to the West Monroe residence of a woman who reported that Terry “attempted to open the back door to her apartment.”

During police questioning, Terry--who lives near the victim’s residence--reportedly spoke of his recent crack use and how he was told to open the woman’s door and enter her home by a “big snake.”

The reptile in question is not further described in the arrest affidavit.

Terry was booked into the local jail for unauthorized entry of an inhabited dwelling, a felony, and disturbing the peace, a misdemeanor. The affidavit notes that Terry has a “lengthy” criminal history.
