Carjacked vehicle pursued by police, crashes into parked vehicles
LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - An 18-year-old Georgia man carried out a carjacking and led police on a high-speed police chase through part of Louisville early Monday morning, crashing into several parked cars along the way, according to his arrest report.
Police said shortly after 2 a.m. Monday, Lequavion A. Seabrooks of Ellenwood, GA approached a man's car from behind at the Greyhound bus station at 7th Street and Muhammad Ali Boulevard, pointed a small handgun at the owner, and told him to run several times. The suspect then got into the car and drove west down Ali.
While the responding officer was taking a report about the crime, other officers located the stolen vehicle and started following it. When the officers activated their lights and sirens, Seabrooks took off through downtown Louisville, they said.
Seabrooks traveled the wrong way on 6th Street and then 5th Street, where he hit a police car head-on at 5th and Market Streets, the report states. He then allegedly drove on the sidewalk, destroying two parking meters.
Police said Seabrooks then drove the wrong way down Jefferson Street and then drove south in the northbound lanes of 2nd Street, crashing into three parked vehicles on 2nd Street at Breckinridge.
Several Spalding University students who walked outside their dorm on 2nd Street to watch the commotion realized some of their cars had been hit.
Seabrooks then jumped out of the car and led police on a foot chase that lasted about three blocks. He was captured by officers behind 811 S. 2nd Street.
Police said Seabrooks had no operators license on him and he was carrying three of the victim's credit cards when he was arrested.
Seabrooks is charged with two counts of fleeing or evading police, four counts of criminal mischief, first-degree robbery, wanton endangerment, reckless driving and no operators license.
