The Grand Rapids man’s case first won notoriety when he failed to make court dates because he said he was homebound. Instead, Klein stayed in bed where he said he’s imprisoned in his body. Photos showed him surrounded by his oxygen machine, pill bottles, Big Gulp soda cups, flat-screen TV and 10 Chihuahuas.
