What lengths would you go to for a front row parking spot, every day?
Bradley parked in the handicapped parking spot at city hall all the time. The city manager, Kelly Callihan, noticed it, but since Bradley had a placard, it didn’t register as an issue.
Clearly, someone had a problem with it, and whoever that was dropped a tip with the Polk County Sheriff’s Office to look into her parking situation.
After discovering Bradley had never been issued a parking permit, authorities set up a covert surveillance camera outside city hall.
They observed her exiting her vehicle and carrying a suitcase into city hall without any assistance.
More importantly, they were able to zoom in on her placard, to reveal that it belonged to a woman who had died in 2012.
On top of that, the real permit expired in 2013, which indicates that the mayor’s, which had a 2018 expiration date, was likely a forgery.
Police got a warrant and searched her home, and found another placard, from another deceased person.
Bradley was arrested and charged with identity theft, counterfeiting, and illegal parking in a handicapped spot.
County Sheriff Grady Judd said Bradley “embarrassed the citizens of Davenport.”
Bradley could be facing a suspension during her trial, and will have to step down if she is convicted.
