A reality TV show "reptile wrangler" is in some hot water for allegedly swiping snakes in our neck of the woods.

Robert Keszey is the star of the Discovery Channel's "Swamp Brothers."

He's been indicted on one count of conspiracy to illegally trap, transport and sell endangered rattlesnakes at his farm in Florida.

Investigators say some of those snakes were captured in the Jim Thorpe area back in 2007.

Another man, Robroy MacInnes, is also charged in the case.
