KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) -- A Missouri man has pleaded guilty to robbing a Kansas bank with a hatchet.

The U.S. attorney's office announced Tuesday that 35-year-old Derek T. Brownlee, of Kansas City, Mo., admitted to one count of armed robbery. A criminal complaint alleged Brownlee jumped the teller's counter and demanded money in July at the Metcalf Bank in suburban Overland Park.

He took cash from a drawer and some personal items from a teller including a cell phone. He then led police on a chase at speeds up to 90 miles an hour before being stopped in Kansas City, Mo. He was arrested after he fled from the car on foot.

Brownlee faces up to 20 years in prison and a fine up to $250,000 when he is sentenced Jan. 21.
