A Vermont fugitive on the run for a week is back behind bars.
Scott Amidon, 39, was first arrested last Thursday, accused in a domestic dispute. Police say during an argument with his wife, the Perkinsville man fired his shotgun in the air twice and pointed it at his children.
Investigators say Amidon posted bail but didn't show up his for court appearance. Late Wednesday night, Windsor police say they found him driving a stolen car. He also had drugs and needles on him.
Amidon has 10 previous felony convictions, half for escape.
