No charges filed against local teen accused of threatening to kill police officer
OKLAHOMA CITY – An 18-year-old Oklahoma City man arrested for allegedly plotting an act of terror against police is released from jail.
The suspect, Bradley Rodriguez, had spent more than a week in the Oklahoma County jail without bond.
No charges were ever filed in the case.
Police arrested Rodriguez in late December.
They claimed Rodriguez made threats against police while standing outside a taco stand on the city’s southwest side.
The initial police report claimed Rodriguez and a second unknown male agreed to “murder the first police officer they could find.”
Rodriguez never attempted to follow through on the alleged threat, but was arrested after a confidential call to police informed them of the statements.
Rodriguez’s parents say they’re upset their son was held for more than a week behind bars without charges being filed and without a bond ever being granted.
Oklahoma County district attorney David Prater would not confirm why his office declined to file formal charges.
