BEND, OR -- A Deschutes County deputy involved in an off-duty incident has been fired for violating several Sheriff’s Office policies. 


Sheriff Shane Nelson released a statement Thursday saying Bradley Wright’s employment was terminated after a review of the criminal and internal investigation into his actions on December 24. Wright was involved in a minor crash at the Bend Fred Meyer and allegedly grabbed the arm of a 67-year-old woman, leaving a bruise. He completed a diversion program and community service to resolve the criminal harassment case.


In a written statement, Sheriff Nelson said, "Those employees who do not subscribe to the mission and values of the Sheriff's Office will no longer be a member of this agency." Wright was placed on paid administrative leave December 28 until his termination.
