Before she could figure out what was happening, she told the news station that the snake bit her two more times. 

After shaking it loose, her boyfriend and son killed the snake by stomping on it. 

“I’ve bred and raised reptiles for 15 years,” her boyfriend, Michael Clem, told  Fredricksburg.com.

Dating rumors intensify after Scott Disick, 34, caught kissing Sofia Richie, 19

Scott Disick, best known for being Kourtney Kardashian’s long-term ex, featured Sofia Richie, the daughter of Lionel Richie, on his Instagram story over the weekend.

>> Read more trending news 

The pair was quite close, suggesting more than just friendship. Disick, 34, and Richie, 19, spent part of the day in Miami with friends on a boat.

There are also other telling pictures, some posted by Richie, from the trip’s moments, including a dessert plate that said “Congratulations Scott and Sophia.”

Many fans wondered what the congratulations were for and guessed an engagement or a formal coming out to the public of their relationship.

An unnamed source told Us Weekly that the two are “definitely an item.”

“Things became official over the past week while they were in New York City together,” the source said. “It’s so weird. Not just the age difference, but mostly the fact that Sofia has been a family friend for years, and was close to Kendall and Kylie (Jenner).”

Many social media users found the potential couple’s relationship strange, citing their 15-year age difference.

“Scott is totally romancing her and she is under his spell. He ... is spoiling her with shopping trips and sweet gestures,” an unnamed source told E! News. “Sofia has been interested in him for a long time. She feels like she knows a different side of him and that they are good for each other. She is falling hard and thinks this is the real thing.”

Another unnamed source told the tabloid the relationship isn’t serious. 

“They just get along great and share very similar friends. Sofia’s been all over the place lately and seems like she is not serious about most things especially getting serious with a dude. It’s light and fun between them at the moment,” the source told E!.

According to Us Weekly, Disick and Richie were spotted together as early as May, during a birthday trip for Disick in Cannes, France.

Richie tweeted once in May and again in June, saying her relationship with Disick was just a friendship. 

“The last time I'm gonna say it. Scott and I are just friends. I'm single and focused on friends, family and work,” she wrote.

Disick shares three children with Kardashian, Mason, 7, Penelope, 5, and Reign, 2.

Elderly man beaten for several minutes on NYC street, police say

An elderly man who refused to hand over his money to two would-be robbers was beaten for several minutes in an attack caught on a home surveillance camera. 

The 79-year-old man was walking on a Bronx sidewalk early Friday morning when two men got out of a car and approached him, NBC New York reported. Police officials told the news station that the men demanded cash from the victim. 

In the video, which was obtained by the news station, one man shakes the victim’s hand, then rears back with his arm and punches the elderly man in the face. The victim falls to the ground, raising his hand up to ward off any other blows.

Both men continue to attack him, even as he crawls into the street to get away. The NBC affiliate, which stopped the video as one of the men delivered the first kick to the victim’s face, reported that the punches and kicks were repeated for several minutes before the attack ended.

The men fled when bystanders approached, the news station reported.

The victim, who suffered a broken jaw, is seen in the video shakily getting to his feet and stumbling away. 

The suspects remained at large Monday.
