The Nissan SUV hopped the pavement and bounced to a standstill just short of the lamppost. Bryan Zuniga jumped out, darted across the street and hurdled a fence behind the St Peterburg’s water-treatment plant. Driving that SUV without a licence was the last thing he wanted to be sent back to prison for. He kept squatted in the dark and waited for that deputy to move on. That’s when he heard something rustle behind him. Turning. Seeing an alligator lunge at him with its mouth wide open. That’s how he told it to the nurse at the General Hospital.
