A 33-year-old man allegedly in possession of a loaded handgun was chased down by Palo Alto police Saturday after he tried to run away from officers who were about to search him, according to police.
Bradshaw stumbled and fell after running about 15 yards. Officers struggled with him on the ground as he was reaching for his front waistband, but they were able to take him into custody safely. They found a loaded .22-caliber revolver in his front pants pocket. Police said the weapon was not registered to Bradshaw. He also has a restraining order against him that prohibits him from possessing a firearm.
Bradshaw was booked into the Santa Clara County Main Jail for felony counts of possessing a loaded firearm with a prior felony conviction, possessing a firearm while subject to a restraining order, possession of a firearm by a narcotics user, and possessing a firearm without being the listed, registered owner. Police also booked him for one misdemeanor count of resisting arrest.
The Santa Clara County District Attorney's Office will review the case, and any applicable charges related to the marijuana possession may be added at a later date.
