Virginia Police Officer Bradley Colas stabbed 2 firefighters at the scene of his vehicle crash

Det Shavedlongcock:

I have no personal information regarding this incident but I have responded to car crashes where the driver or passenger has become violent due to head injuries or other medical emergencies. If this cop acted this way because he is an asshole, well shame on him BUT if something else caused this officer to act this was such as injury or a medical incident...I wish him well.

HALLWOOD, Va. — A police officer in Virginia Beach faces charges of stabbing two firefighters at the scene of a car wreck Sunday morning.

Bradley Colas, 23, was charged with two counts of malicious wounding of an emergency medical care provider after crashing his Honda into a tree, according to The Associated Press.

Reports say the two firefighters were stabbed as they treated his injuries at the scene. Colas also drew a firearm and began shooting at responders, according to state police.

Troopers detained Colas at the scene when he tried to walk away. He was transported for observation to a hospital where he is in custody.

The firefighters' injuries were not life-threatening. It is unclear if the officer was driving his personal vehicle or if he was on duty.

I got an idea! When someone shoots at you, You shoot back and kill them!

I would hope he was off duty. Said he crashed a Honda into a tree, not too many Honda's used as a squad car.

Bradley Colas voted for Obama, then asked him if he was there to help him.

I saw a police car video once in which the PO was involved in a crash and suffered head injuries. When fellow PO's, his friends, arrived he didn't recognize any of them and fought them. Head trauma is bad stuff. No intent involved, just brain injury. Could happen to anybody.

very well could have been a head injury, seen it, been there, haven't done it yet.

You are all wrong and shouldn't be casting judgement when you don't know what caused this young man to act the way he did.

I’ve know this young man for several years and this is completely out of character. This behavior must be the result of an injury or reaction to medication. Bradley is a fine person. I’m glad that those who were caring for him weren’t hurt more badly than they were and I’m praying for his recovery and return to work.

I studies criminal justice with Brad in college and he was always very polite and genuine, definitely not someone to react this way in his right mind. I am 100% sure this is a Phineas Gage effect.

Before passing judgment look up Biaxin side effects very interesting. I can not believe he is still in jail. Makes me not want to visit Virginia. I am just glad they did not kill him at the scene he is really a great kid. My thanks go out to the arresting officers and the Rest of the responders. I just do not understand the Judges decision unbelievable.

Forget all you motherfuckers that are talking shit about Brad. I grew up with him and this is completely outside of his behavior. You should be ashamed for judging someone you've never met.

I never met Hitler, but I feel pretty secure in judging him.

Free Brad said...

As a good friend of the Colas family, I have an inside view of this situation and know with 100% confidence that due to an extreme reaction to the antibiotic Biaxin (Clarithromycin) which included insomnia, paranoia, delusions, and hallucinations, Bradley was not in his right mind when this incident occured. I am thankful nobody was seriously wounded or killed, and am disgusted that instead of being taken to a facility appropriately equipped for psychiatric evaluation and care, Brad has been treated like a career criminal: being held in the county jail without bond while having charges of attempted murder piled on. All in disregard and contempt for the professional opinion of the doctors and medical staff who have treated Brad since the incident, and who have all firmly stated their judgement that this was an incident caused by a severe reaction to Brad's prescribed medication.

I know Bradley and he would NEVER hurt anyone. His reaction to the medication caused this. We know that most people are let out on bail/bond for more extreme cases within a few days. For them to consider this attempted murder is ridiculous.

I am the wife of a police officer. After my husband finished with the police academy, which is physically, emotionally, and mentally taxing.. he would have active police dreams, which would wake him up in the middle of the night. His brain was processing the massive amounts of important information he had received throughtout the academy. It makes perfect sense why Colas could have reacted the way he did in his sleep depriven, physchotic-episode. He was acting out all of the training he had received the past couple of months in the academy. He felt he needed to save someone in Philedelphia, he drove fast to get there, he opened fire at those he believed were trying to kill him.

I am just so sorry that Brad has to deal with the reprocussions of what was not his fault... The reaction to the medicine.

I don't give a fuck what drugs he was on or what the side effect may have been. Do meth heads get a free pass because "the drugs made me do it"? Hell no!!

The ONLY reason this asshole isn't in prison is because he's a cop.

Fuck Brad Colas.
