Some of you might remember Jermaine Bradley. He was on Dateline NBC a while back as a result of his participation in North Charleston’s STAND program. Of the eight drug dealers the program attempted to help, Bradly was touted as one of the success stories.
Bradley, of Niagara Street in North Charleston, was charged early Saturday morning with Assault & Battery of a High & Aggravated Nature, Driving Under Suspension More Than 1st Offense, Open Container and Possession of Marijuana. We are told the ABHAN charge stems from Bradley’s attempt to run over a police officer after Bradley was involved in a collision at a gas station.
Bradley’s total bond was set at $102,987.50.
In 2010 Bradley was charged with Possession of Crack and Resisting Arrest. He plead guilty to the possession charge and was sentenced to 79 days by Judge Roger Young. The resisting charge was dismissed by the 9th Circuit Solicitor.
After his participation in the STAND program Bradley remained relatively trouble free until January of 2014 when he was charged with Failure to Stop for Blue Lights. He plead guilty and was sentenced by Judge Thomas “Felon’s Friend” Hughston to 1 year, suspended to 53 days (credit given) and 1 year of probation. Note that Bradley did not serve 53 days in jail, yet was given credit for it.
In light of attempts this weekend by The State newspaper, aided and abetted by WCIV News and WCBD News, to gin up racial hatred when it comes to police shootings, we have to point out here is a black guy who tried to run over a police officer and was NOT shot, or even shot at. Maybe the news folks can run to their police “expert” professor who recommends officers run away and hide until the rest of the department gets there and get some comments on this story.
