LONG ISLAND, NY (WCBS/CNN) – A 22-year-old woman is accused of going on a joyride with a stolen snake and crashing into a New York firehouse while drunk.

Sarah Espinosa pleaded not guilty to charges of reckless endangerment, DWI, larceny, and possession of marijuana on Tuesday.

Police say she crashed into a firehouse garage Monday night, damaging two fire trucks.

Firefighters who rushed to help her found a ball python wrapped around her neck. Police determined the snake had been stolen from a nearby pet shop.

A judge set Espinosa’s bail at $5,000 and requested to suspend her license.
