Olde Pink House standoff video surveillance released

Posted: Updated:

On the one-year anniversary of a police standoff at the Olde Pink House, WTOC obtained video surveillance from inside the restaurant.

Kevin Brooks and Brian Jones were found guilty of false imprisonment, armed robbery and aggravated assault in the crime.

Police say Brooks kidnapped Earl Hamilton Jr., then forced him to drive downtown to withdraw cash. Hamilton flagged down Metro officer Trina Mayes. Mayes fired her gun at Brooks, who fled into the Olde Pink House.

The standoff stemmed from a robbery the night before at Hamilton's home in the 1100 block of Milton Street.
