SELLERSBURG, IN (WAVE) - When University of Louisville Hospital personnel discharged a man accused of leading police on a pursuit, there wasn't a law enforcement officer monitoring him.
Sellersburg Police Chief Russ Whelan said it's his department's fault for not being present at the hospital when the suspect was released.
Adam Moore, 29, is accused of leading police on a high speed pursuit and crashing into another vehicle. Moore was ejected from the vehicle.
"He was thrown from the sunroof as the vehicle rolled and first responders informed us he suffered major head trauma," said Whelan. "We thought time was going to be on our side - thinking he would be in the hospital in serious condition for several days."
Instead, Moore was discharged a day later. Since he was being treated across the state line, Whelan said his officers did not have arrest jurisdiction in Kentucky.
"I actually thought he was going to be there for a considerable amount of time," said Whelan. "And I was under the impression, talking to my dispatch, that one of the other agencies in Kentucky, where Moore has active warrants, would be sending an officer over there. This all breaks down to a communication failure."
After his discharge from University Hospital, Whelan said Moore was roaming downtown Louisville for several hours in a hospital gown and one shoe.
"At that point, he went to Norton Hospital where staff alerted Metro Police that something suspicious was going on," said Whelan.
Moore was booked into Louisville Metro Corrections on an outstanding warrant. According to Whelan, Moore will face six felonies in connection to the police pursuit.
