Man admits leading deputies onto airport


A man who led deputies on a July 5 chase onto Minden-Tahoe Airport’s tarmac right in front of a plane preparing to take off admitted to attempted eluding a deputy.

Dean Orville Bradbury hopped into a running Chrysler and drove at speeds approaching 100 mph with deputies in pursuit.

He knocked down a couple of fences to get onto the airport’s tarmac and drove within 10 yards of an airplane preparing to take off.

In exchange to his plea, prosecutors will recommend a suspended sentence of 2-5 years on condition he attend mental health court.

The maximum sentence he could receive is six years in prison and a fine. He is scheduled to be sentenced Oct. 20.

Typically, possession requires mandatory probation, but Anderson has two convictions in Yerington for possession and trafficking.

Anderson was arrested Aug. 1, according to court documents.
