Man who flashed fake FBI badge waives hearing
A man who led deputies on a May 1 pursuit down Highway 395 waived his preliminary hearing Wednesday.
Fabian Eloy Campos, 39, held up a fake FBI identification through the sunroof of a red Audi as he drove down Highway 395 at 90 mph.
According to attorney Brian Filter, Campos will admit to charges of possession of a stolen vehicle and eluding deputies in district court.
In exchange for his plea, prosecutors won’t seek a habitual felon charge.
Campos could still enter a not-guilty plea at his Nov. 2 arraignment in Douglas County District Court.
■ The sentencing for a Carson City man, who jumped in a running vehicle and led deputies on a chase across Minden-Tahoe Airport’s tarmac, has been delayed for two weeks while attorneys figure out how much he owes in restitution.
Probation has is being recommended so that Dean Orville Bradbury III can obtain mental health treatment after he admitted to attempting to elude deputies.
Prosecutor Matt Johnson said he is seeking $7,725 in restitution to cover damage to the vehicle and airport fence.
Bradbury’s defense attorney Kristine Brown objected to that amount so a Nov. 3 hearing was set to offer evidence of the amount.
In the meantime, Bradbury was released on his own recognizance so he can attend mental health court in Carson City.
Bradbury admitted to hopping into a running vehicle on July 5 and leading deputies on a 100 mph chase down Highway 395 to Airport Road where he drove through a fence. Prosecutors said that he drove within 10 yards of an airplane preparing for take-off.
Under a plea deal, a suspended 2-5-year prison sentence is being recommended by both the defense and prosecution on condition he gets help.
