PINELLAS PARK, Fla., May 10 (UPI) — Police in Florida said a man who eluded capture by officers during a traffic stop was arrested later in the day after being attacked by an alligator.

Pinellas County sheriff’s deputies said Bryan Zuniga, 20, fled on foot during a traffic stop Thursday in Pinellas Park and was able to avoid deputies, CNN reported Friday.

However, Zuniga was arrested a few hours later when he visited a hospital to receive treatment for alligator bites to his face, arm and armpit area.

Zuniga said he was attacked by the alligator near a water treatment plant in St. Petersburg, a few miles away from where he fled from deputies.

Zuniga was arrested on charges including driving without a license and fleeing police.
