WATERVLIET, N.Y (NEWS10) – The Troy man charged in a chase that ended in a standoff was back in Watervliet City Court Tuesday.

During the hearing, 19-year-old Najaleek Walker’s case was waived to county court. The court will send the case to a grand jury.

Walker led police on the chase last Wednesday after being spotted driving a stolen car. That chase took them to Watervliet, before walker crashed at 19th Street and Third Avenue.

With the help of five other police departments, Watervliet officers surrounded a home he was believed to be in. After searching that home he was discovered in the basement of a house next door.
