Cop accused of stabbing Va. responders faces more charges

Bradley Colas is now charged with attempted murder, firearms count

By EMS1 Staff

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. — A Virginia Beach police officer accused of attacking two firefighters at the scene of a car crash is facing more charges.

Bradley Colas was previously charged with two counts of malicious wounding of an emergency medical care provider.

On Wednesday, the 23-year-old was charged with attempted murder and a firearms count, according to The Associated Press.

The charges stem from an incident March 4 when Colas crashed his car and allegedly stabbed two firefighters treating him. He was also accused of pulling out a gun and shooting at responders.

Colas' lawyer blamed the incident on side effects from an antibiotic he took for a respiratory infection, according to the report.
