CPD: Wanton endangerment

By Officer Adam Cravens, PIO
Columbia Police Department

Officers responded to Harper Valley Trailer Court off Tutt Street on Friday night, January 15, 2021, when a male subject called reporting a stolen handgun. Upon making contact with caller, he was found to be intoxicated, but continued to insist a neighbor had stolen his gun. However, he would not give officers the neighbor's name.

While officers were on scene, the male subject went to his vehicle and retrieved a shotgun shouting he was going to get his property himself. Officers were able to quickly subdue subject without incident.

Bradley West, 49, of Columbia, has been charged with alcohol intoxication, falsely reporting an incident, and wanton endangerment of police officers.

After West was placed into custody, a search of residence yielded a handgun in the exact spot West had stated his gun was stolen from.

Officer Trevor Foster was the arresting Officer. He was assisted on scene by Officer Evan Burton and Deputy Josh Durbin.
