Tim Malone, a DJ at Skateland roller rink for 20 years, said he was paying attention to his Android and not where he was walking as he passed through a parking lot. 

As he approached the building to go in, he looked up and realized he was stepping on a snake, which caused him to dance away in panic.

Malone said he felt an adrenaline rush and started kicking when he realized it was a snake.
