Video: "Barefoot Bandit" Colton Harris-Moore Runs From Cops in the Bahamas
Early on a dark Caribbean morning, on a sandbar just off Harbor Island, one of the great fugitive chases in American history came to a gunshot-punctuated end.
Colton Harris-Moore, the "Barefoot Bandit" famous for fleeing a Washington halfway house and hijacking Cesnas, surrendered to police officers after they riddled his stolen speedboat's engines with bullets and stranded him in the water.
Harris-Moore was then flown to Miami to face charges, but what exactly happened in the Bahamas? The Bandit's hometown Seattle Times answers some questions in a new story -- and provides video of Harris-Moore sprinting from police on a Bahamanian dock.
Before his arrest, Harris-Moore was evidently itching for some more adrenaline. A group of teens on Eleuthera spotted the Bandit floating off the coast and yelled at him.
