After being on the run for years, police say it was a simple act of public urination that got an attempted murder suspect in the end.

The man with a $2 million bond hanging over his head was spotted urinating outside a business in south Colorado Springs Tuesday. The suspect tried giving officers a false name, but his true identity was revealed after police elected to have him fingerprinted--he was Miguel Sanchez, wanted for a 13-year-old attempted murder case out of California. Sanchez was taken into custody.

Police say that when officers returned to the scene on South Academy, they reportedly found two men attempting to steal the car Sanchez had been driving prior to his arrest. Timothy Stubblefield was arrested for first-degree criminal trespass and Eric Satterfield was arrested for attempted aggravated motor vehicle theft in the second degree.

All three men are currently in the CJC. The courts are in the process of returning Sanchez to California to face charges.
