That was definitely not what the customers ordered

Customers at a sushi restaurant were shocked when a 13-foot-long Burmese python interrupted their meals.

According to Huffington Post, Hiroshi Motohashi had paid for a $200 meal at Sushi of Tokyo in Los Angeles when he brought out a small snake to show other diners. When asked to leave the customer did, but he soon returned with the python. 

“[Expletive], you guys,” he allegedly said, and dropped the snake on the floor in the middle of the restaurant and left, Lt. Jim Gavin told the Times.

After ditching the snake in the restaurant several customers began to panic, as per the Huffington Post.
CBS says that before dropping the giant reptile in the restaurant, Motohashi showed the snake off to a group of kids in the parking lot.

The snake was finally recovered after it slithered behind the cash register and got stuck, as per the LA Times.
Motohashi was arrested on suspicion of making criminal threats, ABC Los Angeles said.
