Several hours later, they received a call from the police in a neighboring city about a man who was just admitted to the emergency room for an "animal attack." As you may have guessed, the man was totally Bryan Zuniga.

Luckily, his hair was perfect that day.
In his frantic escape from the police, Zuniga stumbled behind a water treatment plant and ran directly into an alligator. The animal responded by trying to eat his face, at which point Zuniga decided that he'd rather go to jail.
Burglars Lock Homeowner in His Gun Closet
A trio of burglars stormed into a man's house in Houston, Texas, and forced him into an upstairs closet while they ransacked his home, because they either were under the impression that closet locks are impenetrable or held an unwavering belief in the honor system.

"Welp, guess there's nothing to do in here but look incredibly fly."
Unfortunately, what the burglars didn't realize is that they'd stuffed the man into his own gun closet. This being Houston, it is unclear whether the guns in question actually belonged to the homeowner or simply came with the house when he bought it.
Unsurprisingly, the man armed himself, waited for a few minutes, and carefully went downstairs to see if the coast was clear. One of the bandits was still there, however, and the two traded bullets until the burglar eventually took one in the neck like Morg from Flight of the Intruder. The other two burglars bailed, leaving their partner bleeding on the sidewalk to be scraped up and carried to the hospital by incredulous emergency crews.
