While dining in the “Iroha Sushi” restaurant of Tokyo eatery in Los Angeles, the 46-year-old was busy enjoying his $200 Sushi meal, but he was also accompanied by a guest, a small garden snake which he was showing off to other diners. The scared customers’ voices drew the attention of the eatery’s management, leading to an alleged altercation between Motohashi and them.

The enraged diner immediately marched out, but soon returned, with an even bigger snake: a 10 to 13 feet long Yellow python! Releasing the snake in the restaurant, he continued to scream expletives even though the restaurant staff repeatedly asked him to leave. Several frightened customers fled the scene screaming, however, no one was injured, as the large snake wasn’t able to get very far and was soon captured by Animal Control. The Police later arrested Motohashi on charges of making criminal threats, said Lt. Jim Gavin of the Los Angeles Police Department in Van Nuys.

Motohashi, whose bail was set at $50,000, had earlier told San Diego Uptown News,

I love to educate people about the animals and let them see things they wouldn’t normally see… and I want people to see how they could take care of these animals responsibly.

According to the LA Times, Motohashi already has had quite a colorful track record of unusual incidents involving exotic animals. In 2005, he was convicted of selling endangered animals and venomous lizards, while in 2011, he was photographed outside of his exotic pet shop, A Glass Jungle, with a 15-foot-long Albino Tiger Python named Cleopatra!
