LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WAVE) - A Louisville man facing charges after allegedly shooting at a police officer and beginning a police chase was denied home incarceration by a judge on Friday.

Chandler Hines, 21, was arrested on Thursday evening and charged with attempted murder of a police officer, fleeing or evading police, convicted felon in possession of a handgun and tampering with physical evidence.

Hines appeared in court on Friday, where despite the numerous new felonies, Hines was surprised he wasn’t being let out.

“So, I can’t get HIP, ma’am?” he asked.

“No sir,” the judge responded. “No, well, if you post $500,000, you can go to HIP.”

Hines has a history of being granted home incarceration again and again. He already has slew of other felonies, some of which he pleaded guilty to.

The other offenses include shooting several rounds at a woman then picking up the casings, putting a gun to another woman’s head, and other drug related charges. He’s also facing a prior escape charge.

Records show he’s gotten more than a second chance when it comes to sentences, from three years to serve to five years of probation. That was before Hines would get arrested yet again.

On March 14, just one month before the chase and shooting, Judge Charles Cunningham issued an order revoking his probation to bring him back behind bars.

Court documents showed that by April 12, Hines’ ankle monitor was disabled was disabled and police did not know his immediate location.

On Thursday, Louisville Metro Police officers attempted to pull over a vehicle driving in the front of Mary & Elizabeth Hospital on Bluegrass Avenue around 2 p.m.

An arrest report states Hines rolled down the vehicle’s window before firing several shots at the officer. He then sped away at 80 miles per hour in a 35 mph zone.

Police said Hines fired at officers a second time during the police chase, according to documents.

Hines got out of the car on Olenda Avenue, where he ditched the handgun and ran towards Algonquin Parkway before officers apprehended him.

Louisville Metro Police Assistant Chief Steve Healey said officers did not fire back at Hines during any point of the pursuit or arrest.

Hines was found with drugs in his possession and was wanted on multiple felony warrants. Police said Hines had also cut off his ankle monitor and escaped home incarceration.

Hines remains booked in Metro Corrections. He entered a plea of not guilty and will be due back in court on May 9.
