The man was quick to note that he was “in a legal battle” with government officials in Baldwin County. He said he had “gone public” with information and that the officials had told him, “We use retaliation and that is how we do,” according to a Bibb County sheriff’s deputy’s Dec. 9 report. The man, from Milledgeville, had driven to work on Reid Street in Macon that morning.
The man said he is “systematic,” meticulous, that he walks into the office with a tote bag and a binder “the same way every day,” the report said. But that day he left his binder in the car.
“He went and retrieved the binder (and) to his surprise when he lifted the binder there was a gold/brownish-and-black snake” inside his car, the report said. “(The man) stated that he believes he is a target because of his investigation.”
Someone removed the snake before the deputy arrived, but the man took pictures of it and gave them to the deputy to document the incident. The deputy checked the car for cracks or holes, but found none.
How the snake got in the car was a mystery.
