Robert (Bobby) Socks, 47, of Bridgeport was arrested late last night after police were called to an apartment belonging to Ester Flats, 27. Flats told the police that Socks showed up at her apartment last night wanting her to show him her snake. When she did so, he grabbed the three foot long bull snake and began biting it. A shaken Flats told OFF THE WALL NEWS, "My snake will live, but has lost that lovin' feeling."

Socks refused to have his arrest photo taken, instead he sat while a police artist painted his likeness.
OFF THE WALL NEWS will continue to follow this case up to and including the trial.
