(Newser) – A man wanted for 13 years on attempted murder charges in Los Angeles was captured in Colorado after someone called police to report he was urinating on a wall outside a KFC restaurant. Miguel Sanchez, 59, initially gave officers a false name when he was arrested Wednesday, according to the Colorado Springs Police Department. After he was fingerprinted, police discovered his identity and that he had a $2 million warrant in California; he is accused of stabbing someone multiple times after an argument in 2000, then stabbing a second person before running away.

"Kentucky Fried Chicken called and said he was peeing on the wall," said Colorado Springs police Lt. Dan Lofgren. "On the run for 13 years, and then they get caught for being stupid."

The only good thing about most of these criminals is the fact that they are stupid and arrogant which goes with the territory of being a criminal I guess.
