Murder suspect would like $235K from kidnapping victims, please

Great story here from Topeka's Capital-Journal ...

In 2009, Jesse Dimmick -- a murder suspect running from authorities -- came into a Shawnee County couple's home and offered them money if they would hide him. The couple fled while he was asleep, and the police arrested him.

Dimmick is now suing the couple, arguing they had a legally enforceable contract, the Cap-Journal reports. Best Part:

A neighbor told The Topeka Capital-Journal in September 2009 that the couple gained (Dimmick's) trust by eating Cheetos and drinking Dr Pepper with him while watching the movie “Patch Adams.”

I know this is Exhibit A for frivolous lawsuits, but if they're all as entertaining as this one, I'm okay with them.
