Alligator attacks suspect on lam from police

PINELLAS PARK, Fla. – Authorities say a Florida man ran from the law and into an alligator’s jaws.

The Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office said 20-year-old Bryan Zuniga was pulled over for failing to maintain a single lane Thursday at about 2:50 a.m.

Deputies said Zuniga stopped the vehicle, jumped out of the passenger door, broke through a vinyl fence and escaped.

The Tampa Bay area man was found at a local hospital a few hours later. He told deputies he had been attacked by an alligator near a water treatment plant. He was being treated for multiple puncture wounds to the face, arm and armpit area.

He has been charged with fleeing police, driving with a suspended or revoked license and resisting an officer without violence.
