ARLINGTON, Va. (AP) - A snake that slithered into some electrical equipment apparently caused a power outage for 10,000 customers in Arlington and Alexandria overnight.

Dominion Virginia Power says the reptile disrupted the electricity substation on Four Mile Run just after 11 p.m. Saturday.

The outage affected more than 10,000 customers in Arlington, Alexandria and parts of Fairfax County. Officials said power was fully restored Sunday morning.
