Video of the incident, which occurred earlier this month and has since gone viral, shows the cautious cop asking for the snake's location inside a campus counseling center.
The officer had a few nervous and cautious attempts to wrangle the reptile and after one final panicked attempt, the nervous cop opened a door and was able to get the creature out.
As the snake left the office, everyone in the room — including the cop — was seen celebrating.
