A South Carolina man was arrested last week after allegedly tossing a fake rubber snake onto a highway and causing a traffic crash, according to the Rock Hill (S.C.) Herald.

According to the story, the incident happened on Sept. 13 when a 17-year-old girl told authorities she saw people throwing a rubber snake onto the highway and dragging it back with a string. The girl said she slammed on her brakes to avoid the fake snake and was hit from behind by another vehicle. Nobody was injured, according to the report.
