Fast-forward a few years, McNair is unhappily living in a North Dakotan state pen. Somehow, he actually tries to do the classic movie escape and heads into the ventilation system. His cellmate didn't make it out, but McNair did. He proceeded to dye his hair, and stole cars for a few months until the law caught back up to him.
You won't believe it, but he escaped again, shipping himself out of the prison in a shrink-wrapped palate. He broke out of the palate after it was delivered and pretended to go jogging. A cop stopped him, and with the utmost calm managed to convince the officer he just a dude on a run. He crossed into Canada from Washington, stole a car and then outran the police on foot when they saw the car.
Later McNair rode a bike to a different town and traveled back into the U.S.—upon doing so, the cops figured out who he was from his prints and selfies he had taken to get a fake ID. While on the lam, he said he frequently would watch himself on America's Most Wanted, and said the show was "a thorn." He's since been locked back up and remains in custody.
