Local media reports that the belligerent young man was arguing loudly with another man when annoyed residents called the cops.
As police officers tried to settle the dispute, they noticed a "significant bulge" in the 19-year-old's pants and, ahem, inquired about it.
That's when - much to the surprise of everyone present at the scene - the drunk teen proclaimed he had a snake in his underwear and proceeded to pull out a 35-centimetre-long baby king python.
According to Deutsche Welle, the man was quickly taken into custody and placed in a police cell overnight to sober up.
The snake, meanwhile, was placed in a transport box, reports The Local.
Police officers are investigating who the snake belongs to and whether the young man was in violation of any animal protection laws.
