Louisville KY man indicted for plotting to kill cops www.privateofficer.com
Randall Lacefield is accused of planning to kill a Jeffersontown Police Officer at Captain’s Quarters Riverside Grille on Wednesday, according to an arrest citation. He was indicted on two counts of attempted murder and one count of conspiracy to murder.
After a confidential informant alerted police, officers listened to recorded conversations in which Lacefield discussed his plan, including talk of money, a weapon, a motive and a “detailed plan,” the citation said.
Lacefield, who is being held by Metro Corrections on a $500,000 cash bond, allegedly gave the confidential informant $260 as a partial payment for a gun — and also said he planned to kill two officers, the citation said.
Lacefield is also facing charges of wanton endangerment and fleeing and evading Jeffersontown police for allegedly trying to get away from officers who were trying to pull him over on a motorcycle in June, topping speeds of 140 miles per hour and popping a “wheelie” as he first fled, another police citation said.
That citation said Lacefield weaved in and out of traffic and hit a minivan, sending himself and someone else to the hospital.
Attorney Brian Butler, who is representing Lacefield in the wanton endangerment case, said those charges “were not particularly severe” but he was not representing him in the attempted murder case.
Lacefield, who lives in the 100 block of Henry Court, will be arraigned in Jefferson Circuit Court on Monday.
Lacefield has past convictions for wanton endangerment, fleeing police and domestic violence.
