Bryan Zuniga Jail Booking Report
St. Petersburg, FL (The Weekly Vice) - Bryan Zuniga, a 20-year-old Florida man, was jailed Thursday after he allegedly fled from police during a traffic stop. He was taken into custody by an alligator a short time later.
According to the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office, a deputy attempted to pull Zuniga over after his vehicle was observed failing to maintain a single lane.
Investigators say Zuniga stopped the vehicle, bailed out of the vehicle through the passenger side door and escaped through a hole in a nearby fence.
The deputy was unable to keep up with Zuniga and broke off the pursuit.
Zuniga turned up a couple of hours later, however, when he checked himself into a local hospital where he was being treated for puncture wounds to the face and arm.
When deputies arrived at the hospital, Zuniga told them that he had been attacked by an alligator near a water treatment facility in St. Petersburg. Deputies waited for the hospital to complete their treatment before taking him into custody.
He was booked into the Pinellas County Jail and charged with breaking fences, eluding a law enforcement officer, driving with a suspended license and resisting arrest without violence.
