Instead of tip, Disgruntled diner leaves 13-foot python at Los Angeles restaurant

A $200 dinner bill would typically generate a sizable tip, but a 13-foot-long python probably isn't what most restaurants have in mind.

That's what one disgruntled diner, Hiroshi Motohashi, left behind at Iroha Sushi of Tokyo in Los Angeles Sunday night after showing customers a smaller snake and being asked by restaurant management to leavee, according to police.

After paying for his dinner, Motohashi argued with an employee before leaving the restaurant and returning a short time later with the python, which he threw into the dining room after saying “[Expletive], you guys,” LAPD Officer Drake Madison told the Los Angeles Times.

The python attempted to slither away, but became stuck inside a cashier booth and eventually had to be freed by the Los Angeles Fire Department and Los Angeles Animal Services. Both snakes are being cared for by animal services until they can be reclaimed by Motohashi, who was arrested on suspicion of making criminal threats, the Times reported.

Fortunately, no one was hurt, but customers and restaurant employees were understandably shaken after dining with the giant reptile.

"Everyone’s like eating, so customers are yelling, ‘Get this thing out! Are you crazy?’” waitress Jessie Davaadorj told KCBS-TV.

In cell phone video obtained by KCBS, Motohashi can be seen showing the python to children in the restaurant parking lot before the incident.

Motohashi, who previously ran a San Diego pet store, has had other exotic animal-related run ins with the law, the Los Angeles Times reported. In 2005, he was sentenced to 15 months in prison for selling lizards and turtles without a permit, including one to an undercover officer.
