A man who burned four hectares of sugar cane in a field after he tried to cook a snake that he slid over his stomach was imprisoned.
Scott Stoker, 32, was sentenced to two years in prison after following a 12-hour crime that ended on May 30 in Bundaberg, Queensland.
The Bundaberg district court heard on Wednesday that the extraordinary series of events began when Stoker became furious with a Centrelink employee about his payment, the Sunshine Coast Daily reported.

He hurled his phone against a wall, pulled out a gun-shaped lighter and threatened to come back and shoot the Centrelink employee.
When he left the center, he physically attacked a stranger who passed him on the street.
& # 39; Don't look at me, sure, & # 39; Stoker shouted at the stranger.
He then slapped the man's face and neck earlier run to a nearby reed field where he fell asleep.
The court heard that Stoker had woken up with a carpet hose slipping over him.
He caught the snake and cooked it on an open fire, but due to & # 39; strong winds & # 39; the fire spread quickly over the sugar cane field.
About 4.13 hectares were lost, worth an estimated $ 20,000.
Stoker then found shelter in what he believed to be an abandoned house.
He used a screwdriver to come in, rummaging around for food-damaged shelves while searching.
He fell asleep, but woke up from a woman in her 80s who frantically called the police.

Upon his arrest, he became violent with officers and even with headbutts and pulled off an officer's hair.
A female officer needed medical help after being hit on the head.
Stoker came from meth at the time, defender Baran Cassiday said.
Stoker pleaded guilty to several chargers, including mistreatment with bodily injury, setting fire to a crop, burglary and intentional damage, public nuisance, attacking a police officer and obstructing a police officer.
Judge Jennifer Rosengren sentenced Stoker to two years in prison, with a conditional release on January 12, 2020.
