A 19-year-old man was detained in Germany on Tuesday after police found him carrying a 2-foot long python in his pants.

According to the Associated Press, the unidentified man was detained by police in Darmstadt after having a loud drunken argument with another man. When police searched the teenager, they found "a significant bulge" in his pants.

The man then told police he had a snake in his pants and pulled it out to show officers. According to the BBC, police believe the baby king python may belong to one of the man's relatives.

The teen was taken into a jail cell to sleep if off. Officers are investigating whether any animal protection laws were broken.
