Bryan Zuniga thought he was going to make a clean getaway. Police pulled the 20-year-old Zuniga over in Pinellas Park in St. Petersburg, Florida, for failing to stay in his line. However, after stopping his car, Zuniga made a break for it. The budding crook jumped a fence and took off for the hills, but he probably would have been better off getting arrested, because Pinellas Park is a popular place for alligators to congregate. Bryan Zuniga got attacked by an alligator while running from the police; he was later arrested at the hospital by police.
Alligators aren’t law enforcement officers, and they’re not friends to criminals. Alligators are alligators, and if you intrude on their domain, you may well suffer the consequences for your temerity. In the case of young Mr. Zuniga, he was bitten repeatedly on the face, arm, and armpit, and suffered multiple puncture wounds as a result of his alligator encounter. Police booked him on a multitude of charges ranging from traffic violations, driving without a license, and running from the police.
It’s a good thing incompetence isn’t a crime, because Bryan Zuniga almost gave himself the death penalty with the power of alligator.
