Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - A convicted Fargo sex offender who's made a habit of going on the run is back behind bars.

34-year-old Ellric Giroux is in the Polk County Jail. He was wanted for failing to register.

Giroux was convicted in 1998 of Gross Sexual Imposition in Richland County ND. His victim was a female acquaintance under the age of 15.

In a bizarre twist, police caught up with Giroux in September when he was the passenger in a car involved in a hit and run and then a chase.

The driver of the car hit a police car, then sideswiped a truck and struck a cement truck.

There was a warrant out for his arrest, but Girioux was taken to the hospital.

He ran again until being caught in Polk County.
