FULL TITLE: No wriggle room: Kentucky snake preacher has five reptiles confiscated after illegally attempting to transport them through Tennessee
A snake-handling Kentucky preacher has been forced to leave five venomous serpents in Tennessee after he was caught trying to move them through the state.
Jamie Coots pleaded guilty to illegally having poisonous snakes that were confiscated after a traffic stop in Knox County, Tennessee, on Jan. 31.
Prosecutors agreed to drop charges of transporting the snakes and wildlife officials agreed to give back the boxes Coots was using to carry the snakes from Alabama to his Full Gospel Tabernacle in Jesus Name Church in Middlesboro, Kentucky.

again who has the snake ping?
wonder why the traffic stop, and what was seen besides the drivers license...?
They’re probably out looking for me.
That didn’t take long...;D
I have no idea unless he was letting one of the snakes drive.
Isn’t all this snake stuff based on one single verse?
Yes. one verse taken to extremes.
windows too dark a tint. how did they find out about the snakes, that the wildlife resource officer was called in?
One of my roommates at Harvard used to go with his father to tent revivals when he was a boy. He said that they sometimes did snakes.
aw, now there’s a beaut! great car finish, too!
Acts 28:5 And he shook off the beast into the fire, and felt no harm.
Chapter 16 of the Gospel According to Mark states, in part: ‘And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.’
Pardon me if I don’t feel like pushing my luck.
“Who wants to go this time?”
Cute little guys, quite the brave ones!
Bet nobody thinks about breaking into it.
[Burms aren’t venomous though so ignore the misleading title]
I think America is GREAT, still legal to act crazy if you don’t hurt anyone.
“You’re probably all wondering why I’ve called you here”
Lemme get this straight.
They didn’t want him to transport the snakes ~through~ the state. So they’re going to keep the snakes *in* the state.
I’m missing something here.....
