Norman Hsu : A Suicide Attempt?

Did Norman Hsu try to commit suicide? The San Francisco Chronicle reports:
Hsu was taken off a passenger train at the Grand Junction train station earlier in the day by paramedics who requested a backboard to move him, said Sgt. Lonnie Chavez with the Grand Junction Police Department. Authorities received a request for medical assistance at the train station at about 11:15 a.m., but the exact nature of Hsu's condition was unclear, Chavez said.
Justin Rood at ABC has a good piece today, pointing out that Hsu apparently is not registered to vote. I noted the same thing here.

Norman Hsu Arrested in Colorado

Norman Hsu has been found and apprehended -- at a hospital in Grand Junction, Colorado.


He did make it to California on Wednesday. His lawyer said his plane touched down at the Oakland airport at 5:30 a.m. That's the last anyone heard of him until Thursday night, when federal and local law enforcment nabbed him at St. Mary's Hospital in Grand Junction, CO.

The FBI arrested him for unlawful flight from prosecution. However, the AP reports those charges will be dismissed once he is returned to California's custody.

    After the [Ponzi scheme] glove business collapsed in April 1990, Hsu was kidnapped four months later in San Francisco by a Chinatown gang leader in an effort to collect a debt from him, police said. The abduction was foiled after the car they were riding in ran a red light in Foster City and was pulled over by police, who rescued Hsu, authorities said.
