Former Cleveland lawyer and current scumbag Dale Zucker was supposed to go on trial in January on fraud charges. Problem was, he never showed up.

Instead, Zucker, who allegedly ran a Ponzi scheme that bilked investors and clients out of almost a million dollars, fled the state. Zucker was a practicing attorney with offices in Cleveland and Chagrin Falls, but not since he saddled up his bags and headed for greener, less-jumpsuity pastures.

Federal authorities and the Ohio Violent Fugitive Task Force had tracked Zucker out west, to Texas and California, before the manhunt nabbed him recently in a Wal-Mart parking lot, presumably on his way to stock up on tube socks and "I'm sorry" greeting cards.

More after the jump.
