Roy and Jessica Fritts' love story began while both of them were in jail and exchanged letters after meeting on a prison pen-pal website. This eventually led to a jail house marriage.
When they got out of jail, the loving couple decided they wanted to go to Nevada, but they had no means of transportation. They ended up hitching a ride from a man who they then allegedly tried to kill by shooting him multiple times and leaving him on the side of the road, then stealing his van.
Utah police spotted the stolen van and began chasing the couple at a high speed. The couple blew out the van tires after riding over police laid stop sticks.
Not ready to give up, these savvy ex-cons took off on foot, then as luck would have it they found another car to steal, jumped in it and started to take off again with police in hot pursuit. There was just one major problem. The car had a stick shift that neither one of the Fritts knew how to drive. The police quickly surrounded the grinding car and the two eventually surrendered.
