    LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - Here's a look at what's trending on the web today.

    "Snake Salvation" pastor dies from bite

    A snake handler and church leader in Kentucky died on Saturday after being bit during a religious ceremony.

    Pastor Jamie Coots was handling a rattlesnake during an evening service at the Full Gospel Tabernacle Church in Kentucky when the serpent bit his right hand.

    Coots refused medical treatment, and died an hour later. His son, Cody, said his dad used snakes during religious services for the past 20 years.

    Coots had suffered snake bites at least eight times before. He appeared on the National Geographic reality show "Snake Salvation."

    Fans upset over Olympics interview

    An interview after an Olympic event last night angered skiing fans across the nation. They said the interviewer, Christin Cooper, went too far.

    American skier Bode Miller broke down after being asked about his brother, who passed away last year.

    Fans online said Cooper, who is a former Olympian herself, should have given him a minute, but instead she went on, asking Miller two more questions.

    Miller tweeted on Tuesday - "I appreciate everyone sticking up for me but lease be gentle w christin cooper, it was crazy emotional and not all her fault."

    Woman jailed after not returning movie

    Many of us don't use a movie rental store anymore, and this next woman likely doesn't either.

    27-year-old Kayla Finley was arrested in South Carolina for not returning a VHS tape more than nine years ago.

    Anyone remember the Jennifer Lopez movie "Monster-in-Law" from 2005? That's how long ago it was when she rented the film.

    Finley was charged with petit larceny and "failure to return a video or cassette."

    She said it's obvious the deputies have nothing better to do, and she plans on fighting the charges.

    Self-tying shoelaces could become reality

    Nike is planning to make self-tying shoes, similar to the ones seen in the film "Back to the Future 2."

    The sneaker magazine, Sole Collector, reported that a Nike designer confirmed the news.

    You may remember Michael J. Fox's "Back to the Future" character, Marty McFly, wore self-tying Nike's in the movie during the year 2015.

    Sole Collector reported Nike's real-life self-tying shoes are also slated to come out in 2015.
