A Colorado man who's serving 11 years in prison for kidnapping a newlywed couple is taking his former hostages to court for turning him over to cops!

Jessie Dimmick wants more than $200,000 from the couple because he says they breached an oral contract after promising not to turn him in for the 2009 incident in which he crashed his car into their yard while on the run from police, and then held them at knifepoint.

A report at the time said the couple was able to gain Dimmick's trust "by eating Cheetos and drinking Dr. Pepper with him while watching the movie Patch Adams" before escaping after he fell asleep. Oh, and if you were wondering where Dimmick found a lawyer dumb enough to take the case ... he's representing himself.
