Lexington House Rep. Chris Wooten was bitten by a snake.
“I stepped on a copperhead,” Wooten said as he walked across his yard with flip-flops on- taking a pet outside, around 8 p.m. Sunday.
Wooten in a Facebook post said: “Shoot yourself with a .22 rifle in the big toe if you want to know what it felt like.”
He said, Monday morning, he was in ICU at Lexington Medical Center and has to be there “at least a couple of days.”
“Craziest thing I’ve ever seen,” Wooten said.
