Billings Police Officers were dispatched to the address of 2709 2nd Ave South for what was described as a disturbance in progress. Bradley had multiple felony warrants for his arrest.
Several Billings Police Officers arrived, but it was Billings Police Officer Brown who actually first spoke to the complainant, Joseph Nezperce who stated to Officer Brown that he came home from being in the hospital and found his nephew, Bradley and Kara Ruegsegger in his home.
Joseph Nezperce knew what trouble his nephew would cause and asked Bradley to leave the premises, however, Bradley refused to leave. his Uncles home.
Several Billings Police entered the home/apartment and located Jacob Kane Bradley. Officers arrested Bradley on his outstanding warrants that had been issued for his arrest on other cases.
Officers in their search of his person found a capped syringe in one of Bradley's pants pockets.
As Officer Brown was walking Bradley to her patrol car, suddenly, Bradley takes off running but only was able to get about 5 feet away from Billings Police Officer Brown. Once Officer Brown was able to get Bradley in her patrol car, she started to drive with Bradley to the Detention facility.
Jacob Bradley somehow was able to turn his body around and kick out the back patrol car window and jump out of the car still handcuffed.
Bradley runs from the vehicle in an attempt to escape.
Officer Brown ran after Jacob Bradley and then pulled out her Taser and shot Bradley in the back as he was running away from her.
The effects of the Taser, made Bradley fall down to the ground. Officer Brown was able to get Bradley back in her car and delivered to the Detention Facility.
Kathy Brown Badge #487 maintains an (A) Rating. Even though Officer Katy Brown shot a man in the back as he was running from her with a Taser, normally her rating would have decreased depending on if she shot the man with lethal force. So, Officer Kathy Brown will still be able to maintain her Police (A) Rating. This is a cop that the public can trust and is not a threat to public safety.
