NEW HYDE PARK, N.Y. (AP) -- Authorities say a New York woman who crashed her car into a Long Island fire house was found to be in possession of marijuana - and a stolen snake wrapped around her neck.

Nassau County police say 22-year-old Sarah Espinosa, of Albany, was driving on Jericho Turnpike on Monday when she crossed the median and collided with a vehicle. They say she continued through the front door of the New Hyde Park fire house and hit two fire trucks.

Fire personnel found a small ball python around her neck.

Authorities say the snake was stolen from a nearby pet store before the accident.

Espinosa was arraigned Tuesday on charges including petit larceny, reckless endangerment and driving while intoxicated. Bail was set at $5,000.

A court-appointed lawyer did not immediately comment.
