Daniel Mills pleaded not guilty Wednesday to first-degree robbery in connection with a holdup at a Lakewood bank.
Mills, 30, was scheduled to be arraigned Tuesday but could not be transported from Pierce County Jail because he was combative with corrections deputies.
Police said a man walked into the Chase Bank branch at 10011 Gravelly Lake Drive SW and handed a teller a note demanding money.
He was seen fleeing in a 1967 Cadillac, which officers spotted later that day on Boston Avenue Southwest.
