America’s Most Wanted airs Bainbridge segment

On Saturday, America’s Most Wanted aired its segment about fugitive Brad Robinett’s run-in with Bainbridge police.

I wrote about the filming earlier this month.

AMW’s website doesn’t allow video embeds, so you’ll have to find the video here.

RobinettThere’s a high-speed car chase on New Brooklyn, a foot chase in Grand Forest Park and Bainbridge officer Steve Cain makes his acting debut.

Looks like Robinett’s re-enacted kayak escape didn’t make the cut.

Elsewhere on AMW’s website is a trove of background info about Robinett. You can see photos (including the one over to the left of him when he was in the Marines) here. And click here to see photo copies of his personal notes, which include mention of Strawberry Hill and Battle Point parks.

Also, AMW has an extended interview with Cain here.

America’s Most Wanted films on Bainbridge tomorrow

The TV show America’s Most Wanted will spend the day on Thursday filming a segment about fugitive bank robber Brad Robinett.

You may remember his daring escape from Bainbridge police back in September 2009. He led police on a car chase, then a trail chase and finally paddled away via a stolen kayak.

One of the show’s staffers told me filming would begin at the Bainbridge police station at around 8 a.m. Later, they’ll reenact the car chase near the Sportsman Club-New Brooklyn intersection and may do some filming in Grand Forest Park, where dozens of law enforcement officers staged a high-profile search last year for firearms thought to have been stolen by Robinett. The show also has permission from a waterfront land owner to film the kayak escape scene.
