Man indicted in January police chase

RICHMOND — A Madison grand jury has indicted a Richmond man in connection with a vehicle chase that resulted in the lockdown of two schools in early January.

Bryan Jason Robinson, 29, is charged with six counts of second-degree criminal possession of a forged instrument, first-degree wanton endangerment, first-degree fleeing and evading, and eight counts of first-degree persistent felony offender.

The first-degree offender charges increase the penalties for the other crimes, making them Class B felonies punishable by 10 to 20 years in prison.

On Jan. 8, an officer pulled Robinson over for a traffic stop near Madison Avenue and Irvine Street. After he was stopped, Robinson took off in his vehicle and was pursued by Madison County Sheriff’s deputies to Union City Road where he abandoned his vehicle and fled on foot, according to the crime report.

Deputies, assisted by Richmond police officers, were unable to find him.

Two schools near where Robinson’s vehicle was found, Glenn Marshall Elementary and B. Michael Caudill Middle schools, went into an early afternoon lockdown during the incident. However, the lockdown was lifted shortly before 3 p.m., and students were dismissed.

Officers were pursuing Robinson because he had a warrant for a parole violation. Court records show that Robinson is a felon convicted in several Madison and Scott county cases since 2009 involving second-degree criminal possession of a forged instrument, theft by deception (cold checks), receiving stolen property, bail jumping and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

The Department of Corrections online offender system indicates that Robinson absconded from parole supervision Dec. 23.

The grand jury also handed down these other indictments Wednesday:

• Christopher Ledford, 25, first-degree wanton endangerment, first-degree fleeing and evading police, aggravated operating a motor vehicle while impaired (first offense), reckless driving, speeding, failure to or improper signal, improper lane usage

• Jennifer L. Perez, 36, flagrant nonsupport

• Glen Elwood Early, convicted felon in possession of a handgun, third-degree possession of a controlled substance (diazepam), illegal possession of a legend drug (gabapentin), operating on a suspended/revoked operator’s license, failure of nonowner operator to maintain insurance.

An indictment is a formal statement of charges and does not imply guilt, only that grand jurors believe the state has enough evidence to prosecute.
