A 43-year-old Baltimore man accused of a fatal hit-and-run last December was denied bail on April 2.

During a bail review hearing before Baltimore City Circuit Court Judge Anthony F. Vittoria, defense attorney Jerry Tarud said his client, Brandan Brown, accidentally struck and killed a pedestrian with his car on Dec. 3, 2022. The pedestrian was on the sidewalk at the time of the incident.

Tarud did not discuss the details of the case; however, he asked Judge Vittoria to release Brown on home detention, citing ongoing medical issues. Defense counsel said Brown had a doctor’s appointment scheduled in March, but was never transported.

The prosecution requested the judge deny bail given the defendant left the scene after hitting the pedestrian. Judge Vittoria deemed Brown a danger to public safety and denied his release.

Brown is next scheduled to appear in reception court on June 21.
