LARIMER COUNTY, Colo. – An armed fugitive finally captured last Friday in Loveland after a day on the run was released from the hospital Tuesday and charged with more than a dozen new felonies.

Adam Fulford, 33, now faces charges of aggravated robbery, aggravated motor vehicle theft, vehicular eluding, two counts of child abuse, three counts of vehicular assault and six counts of menacing just for the incident in Loveland.

He faces additional felonies in different jurisdictions for crimes he was accused of before he went on the run.

Larimer County Sheriff’s Office deputies captured Fulford after he allegedly stole a car at gunpoint earlier that morning, then led police on a chase that ended with him crashing into a family vehicle that had two children inside.

He had been on the run since sheriff’s deputies tried to arrest him in Fort Collins the night before on two felony warrants.

When they showed up to arrest him, he jumped into a taxi and allegedly shot its driver, then led law enforcement on a pursuit before crashing and escaping on foot near Horsetooth Reservoir.

Fulford’s past arrests include domestic violence-related assault, violating protection orders, felony drug possession, three DUI arrests and a weapons violation for being drunk with a gun.   

He's been arrested three times for contempt of court, including a May 2016 contempt conviction after he was arrested for violating a protection order in Loveland.

Just last month, Larimer County sheriff's deputies arrested Fulford on investigation of three counts of felony drug possession, one drug charge alleged he used a gun, and violation of a protection order.

Fulford is being held at the Larimer County Jail on a $500,000 bond for his latest charges.

The sheriff’s office says the victims involved in the carjacking and crash continue to recover from their injuries.
