BEND, OR -- A Deschutes County Sheriff’s Deputy is accused of harassment, following a minor crash in the parking lot of the Bend Fred Meyer, Christmas Eve. District Attorney John Hummel announced Friday Bend Police conducted a thorough investigation and he was charging Deputy Bradley Wright with one criminal count. 


Wright was involved in a fender bender with a 67-year-old woman, December 24. He was off-duty at the time. While exchanging insurance information, he’s accused of – without provocation - aggressively grabbing the woman's arm, leaving a bruise. 
Sheriff Shane Nelson says he’s troubled by the allegations and his agency is conducting its own internal investigation.
Wright is now on paid administrative leave.
