Man in snake-assault case seeks jury trial

May 21, 2010 8:47:00 AM - thestate.com

The snake-as-a-weapon assault case that brought global attention to Rock Hill won’t be resolved for at least another month.

Tony Smith, 29 – accused of using the four-foot-long python to attack another Rock Hill man – pleaded innocent Thursday in Rock Hill Municipal Court to an assault and battery charge related to the alleged April 13 snake attack on Jeffrey Culp.

Smith asked the judge for a jury trial and a court-appointed attorney.

Culp, who has a self-described fear of reptiles, told police he was attacked by a neighbor at the Executive Inn in Rock Hill. After Thursday’s hearing, Culp said he was disappointed not to have a resolution to the case.
