A young man arrested for drunken behaviour in Germany was found to be housing a python in his trousers.

The 19-year-old in Darmstadt was allegedly involved in an altercation on Tuesday night with another man and local residents complained to police.

A police statement said that officers happened across a "significant bulge in his trousers" while carrying out a search.

The man said he had a snake in his pants. He was not lying. He had a 14inch baby python in his pants.

There was no reason given as to why the man was carrying the snake in his underpants but officers were looking into whether or not any animal protection laws had been broken by the man.
