EDITOR'S NOTE: THE CHARGES AGAINST BRIAN DOLAN WERE DISMISSED WITHOUT PREJUDICE BY JUDGE JERRY CROSBY IN THE OLDHAM COUNTY DISTRICT COURTROOM IN JUNE OF 2013. THIS MATTER HAS BEEN RESOLVED AND DOLAN HAS BEEN COMPLIANT WITH CROSBY'S CONDITIONS FOR DISMISSAL.
A Crestwood man allegedly bound his mother with duct tape, locked her in a bathroom Tuesday and fled to Owensboro behind the wheel of her car.
According to police, Brian K. Dolan, 37, of Crestwood, became “extremely upset” during a mid-afternoon argument Feb. 12 about moving out of his parents’ home in Briarhill subdivision.
Police said Dolan restrained his mother, Linda, with duct tape and wrapped several layers of tape around her body and mouth before he locked her in a bathroom.
Brian Dolan left in his mother's Lexus SUV.
An hour later, Linda Dolan, 67, had freed herself from the tape using a pair of scissors. When she emerged from the bathroom, she could not find a telephone to call for help.
According to police, before Brian Dolan left, he'd hidden all of his parents' telephones.
Linda Dolan fled to a neighbor’s house to contact police.
More than 24 hours later, police arrested Brian Dolan at 10:39 p.m. Feb. 13 in Owensboro, where he is lodged in the Daviess County Detention Center on a $25,000 bond.
Nuns at the St. Joseph Monastery near Owensboro contacted police when Dolan arrived in need of a place to sleep.
According to its website, the monastery includes a guesthouse for deep silence, solitude and prayer.
Dolan is charged with unlawful imprisonment and auto theft. He is scheduled to appear in Oldham County district court at 9 a.m. Feb. 27.
Dolan ran two campaigns for a seat in the Ky. House of Representatives.
He sought the District 59 seat during a special election in May 2005, and filed a second time for the 2008 election.
Dolan withdrew from the race in April 2008, just a few weeks before the Republican primary.
