This is a nice story for those of you who believe in karma. Bryan Zuniga, 20, fled police last week after he was spotted driving erratically after 2 a.m. outside of Pinellas Florida.

Zuniga fled his vehicle on foot, kicked a hole in the fence of a nearby water treatment plant, and hid from police. He might have escaped if it weren’t for one large and very aggressive alligator.

The gator attacked Zuniga biting him in the face and torso. Zuniga escaped the reptile, but had to check in to a local hospital because of his injuries. It wasn’t long before police found him and took him into custody. He was charged with damaging a fence, eluding arrest, driving with a suspended or revoked license, and resisting an officer without violence, according to

It’s unclear how Zuniga managed to get himself to the hospital.
