Pittsburgh police say a high school student is facing charges for using a biology class snake as a jump rope. Police say the incident happened Monday at Taylor Allderdice High School.

Police aren't identifying the 17-year-old suspect because he's being charged in juvenile court. The boy will be charged with theft and cruelty to animals.

The animal survived the ordeal and was being examined by a veterinarian.

Pittsburgh Public School officials on Tuesday were not immediately able to say what kind of snake it was.
