A 20-year-old Augusta man is facing charges after he rammed a police cruiser with a stolen vehicle early Thursday.

Richmond County sheriff’s Lt. Blaise Dresser said an officer pulled over a suspicious vehicle driven by Denzel Jaron Bradley around 5:20 a.m. in the 3700 block of Tahitian Trail in Hephzibah.

Officers said Bradley, of the 1000 block of Stevens Creek Road, tried to get out of the stolen Toyota 4Runner but then put the vehicle into reverse and rammed the cruiser.

Dresser said the officer, whose hand was trapped in the 4Runner’s window, was dragged a short distance as Bradley drove away.

The vehicle crashed through several fences before stopping in a ditch. The arresting deputy was taken to a hospital with a hand injury.

While being driven to the jail, Dresser said, Bradley removed his pants and had diarrhea in the back seat of the cruiser.

Bradley has been charged with theft by receiving stolen property, felony obstruction of an officer and interference with government property.

He was on probation for a previous burglary conviction.

If the suspect was cuffed in

If the suspect was cuffed in the back of the police car then that was very impressive that he was able to remove his pants so that he could have a bowel movement. I guess when you gotta go, you gotta go!

CarlA, not impressive at all when most of them wear their pants 4 sizes to big already hanging off their butt..... easy to just slide them a little further down.

You gotta let people go to

You gotta let people go to the bathroom when they want. I'm sure it violates some kind of federal law if you don't.

I am sure his is a victim of circumstance. He stole the Toyota because he needed to find a bathroom quickly. Also the truck wound up in reverse because again; when you gotta go you gotta go.
