LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – The man accused of holding up a bank in Jeffersontown and leading police on a chase that ended in Old Louisville has made his first court appearance.
Brian A. Queen is charged with robbing the BB&T Bank on Bluegrass Parkway just around 11:20 a.m. on October 4 and driving off in a Chevy Malibu. Queen led Jeffersontown and Metro officers on a chase went west on Interstate 64 and south on I-65.
Police say Queen, 30, ditched his car, but as he got out officers saw money fall to the ground. Queen was arrested near Third and Oak Streets.
Chief Richard Sanders of the Jeffersontown Police Department said both Jeffersontown and Louisville Metro officers at the scene when Queen ditched his car showed great restraint. Sanders said after Queen got out of the car, he reached back inside. Sanders said officers could have thought he was reaching for a weapon.
Queen is facing robbery, wanton endangerment, and fleeing and evading charges and has been appointed a public defender. He is being held at Louisville Metro Corrections on a $50,000 bond.
