PINELLAS PARK, Fla. Authorities say a Florida man ran from the law and into an alligator's jaws.
The Pinellas County Sheriff's Office says 20-year-old Bryan Zuniga was pulled over for failing to maintain a single lane Thursday at about 2:50 a.m.
Deputies say Zuniga stopped the vehicle and jumped out of the passenger door. He then broke through a vinyl fence and escaped.
The Tampa Bay area man was found at a local hospital a few hours later. Zuniga told deputies a gator attacked him near a water treatment plant in unincorporated St. Petersburg, CBS affiliate WTSP reports. 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.
