Lawmen were on their tail after a traveling companion in Wyoming said the 33-year-old Fritts shot him, leaving him bleeding on the side of the road.
Spike strips put down by the county sheriff blew out a tire on a van with Fritts inside, but he and his wife kept going on foot, running up to a house in the middle of nowhere and commandeering a vehicle from an elderly man in his driveway, said Summit County Sheriff Dave Edmunds.
That's where Fritts' second madcap getaway attempt stalled.
Neither one could drive a stick shift.
"It is a made-for-TV movie," said Glenda McDaniel, Fritts' parole officer back in La Grande, Ore. "I am not even kidding you."
