Pocahontas Snake Mailer in Trouble Again

LITTLE ROCK, AR - More legal problems for Robert Jerrod Castleman, who with his father pleaded guilty to mailing a snake to another man.

Federal authorities are asking a judge to revoke the Pocahontas man's bond since he has been charged with DUI while awaiting sentencing.

Castleman and his father, Bob Castleman, pleaded guilty in January.  Both are out on bond.

The prosecutor's motion says Jerrod Castleman was arrested in Pocahontas on February 10 for Driving Under the Influence and refusal to take a breath test.

Part of the conditions of his bond include not using alcohol excessively and attending outpatient counseling for alcohol abuse.

The Castlemans pleaded guilty to mailing a live copperhead snake to Albert Coy Staton, who the younger Castleman was feuding with over repairs needed on an all-terrain vehicle he sold to Staton.
