Tribble Surrenders, Faces Traffic Charges After Police Chase

February 25, 1987

Brian Tribble, charged in connection with the cocaine death of Maryland basketball player Len Bias, surrendered to police Tuesday to face other charges stemming from a police chase Feb. 17.

Tribble, 24, accompanied by his attorney, arrived at the Hyattsville, Md., police station Tuesday morning. He was released on personal recognizance after a brief hearing before a Prince George's County District Court commissioner, police said.

Tribble was charged with speeding, reckless driving, fleeing and eluding a police officer and turning out the vehicle's lights to avoid detection in the traffic incident.

He was given permission to retrieve his 1979 Mercedes-Benz, which police had impounded when it was found abandoned after a brief chase through Hyattsville.

A court appearance on the traffic violations, all misdemeanors, will likely be scheduled within the next 60 days, police said.

Tribble faces a trial next month on charges that he supplied the cocaine that led to the death of Bias June 19.
