(Newser) – A Florida man probably had a brief moment of joy when he gave the slip to the sheriff's deputy chasing him. Then the alligator showed up. Police say Bryan Zuniga, 20, ran from his vehicle after a deputy pulled him over for weaving in traffic, reports the Tampa Bay Times. Zuniga hopped a fence and was gone. A few hours later, police got word that their man was being treated in the hospital after being bit in the face and arm by a 'gator near a water-treatment plant. Zuniga is now recuperating in jail on a slew of charges including "injuring fences" and eluding an officer.
