An 18-year-old caught a water moccasin in a pillowcase but it escaped and managed to bite him on the lip. In Florida, it's illegal to catch water moccasins and the teen faces jail time. The same snake shown in Austin Hattfield's facebook page has bitten him. Austin's face was swollen after it bit as can be seen in the video. The cottonmouth snake is said to be in good condition. Austin will face 2nd degree for capturing and improperly containing the snake.
