Jessie Dimmick, a 25-year-old convicted
kidnaper out of Colorado, is suing a couple he held hostage for two
because they broke their promise that they’d help hide him
from the police. Dimmick claims that Jared and Lindsay Rowley agreed
to take an unspecified amount of cash in exchange for helping him
elude the police who were hunting him in connection with the beating
death of a Colorado man. Unfortunately for Dimmick, the Rowleys
didn’t pinky promise.
The two were taken by knifepoint from
their Topeka, Kan., home in September of 2009 after Dimmick crashed a
stolen van into their lawn during a high-speed chase with the popo.
According to The Topeka Capital-Journal,
the Rowleys gained
his trust by eating Cheetos and watching Patch Adams
Dimmick until he fell asleep. They then managed to escape and the
police arrested him sometime later, but not until after he was shot
by a police officer whose gun accidentally went off.
"As a result of the plaintiffs
breech (sic) of contract, I, the defendant suffered a gunshot to my
back, which almost killed me. The hospital bills alone are in excess
of $160,000, which I have no way to pay," Dimmick wrote in the
suit. Dimmick, who doesn’t have a lawyer, wants $235,000, according
to the Capital-Journal
