Texas man faces attempted murder charge in North Dakota

MINOT, N.D. — A Texas man faces five charges including attempted murder after allegedly pointing a loaded rifle at a sheriff’s deputy during a car chase in North Dakota.

Thirty-five-year-old Brandon Bradford, of Giddings, Texas, could face more than 25 years in prison if convicted on all charges, which also include felony fleeing and misdemeanor driving and weapons offenses.

Court documents don’t list an attorney for him. He’s due back in court Nov. 24 and could enter pleas at that time.

The Ward County Sheriff’s Department says the deputy tried to stop Bradford about 1 a.m. Saturday on U.S. Highway 2 between Minot and Berthold because he was driving a vehicle with no right-side tires, only rims. A chase ensured, with Bradford allegedly pointing an AR-15 rifle at the deputy at one point.
