A fugitive is back in custody despite going to great lengths to escape. US Marshalls captured and cuffed the guy moments after he fell 17 stories down a trash chute while running from police.

The man escaped from federal custody in Texas last year. He was wanted there on bank fraud charges.

"He must have been desperate to get the heck out of the building," said resident Jeff Dams. "That trash chute is terrible."

Investigators spent the rest of the day collecting evidence.
