*You hate to be judgmental, but some people make it a real challenge for you to feel sorry for them when they do downright stupid sh*t.
Take this jackass, an 18-year-old showoff named Austin Hatfield who may not have taken the Kylie Jenner lip challenge, but did something just as stupid, when he tried to play ‘Gimme some sugar’ with a venomous snake.
Hillsborough County sheriff’s deputies said Hatfield captured the 4-foot cottonmouth, also known as a water moccasin, while swimming last week and kept it in a pillowcase at his girlfriend’s house, where the bite occurred.
According to what friends of the teen told investigators, Hatfield was trying to kiss the snake when it struck him.
Although the teen was critical condition when he was initially hospitalize, he’s getting better and his status has been upgraded to good condition and officials say he’s expected to make a full recovery.
Hatfield may be charged because investigators said he didn’t possess the proper permits required by the state to catch and keep cottonmouth snakes.
The incident is also being investigated by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.
Watch the video directly below. The newscasters story on the incident differs from that of Hatfield’s friends, who I tend to believe. What about you?
