    A Florida man fleeing a traffic stop almost got away, police say. Until he met up with an alligator.

    Bryan Zuniga escaped police early Thursday, but was arrested at a Florida hospital hours later following the painful encounter with the gator.

    The incident started after deputies pulled over the 20-year-old in Pinellas Park for allegedly failing to maintain a single lane.

    He stopped the vehicle, jumped out and broke through a nearby fence, successfully eluding police, the Pinellas County Sheriff's deputies said in a statement.

    But his freedom did not last long.

    Authorities arrested him a few hours later at a local hospital, where he was getting treatment after the alligator attack.

    Zuniga told deputies an alligator bit him near a water treatment plant in St. Petersburg, which is a few miles from where he ditched his car.

    They already had his car and knew who he was. What a moron. :floorlaugh:
