Officers were requested to assist Adult Probation with locating a person on probation at 75 Jefferson Street. This person was Chad Reed. Prior to the request, Reed was viewed inside the residence by Adult Probation Officers. The probation officers then maintained the perimeter of the residence until BPD officers arrived. They advised they made a positive identification of Reed as he walked upstairs. They then witnessed Reed looking out an upstairs window.
BPD officers were then requested to assist Adult Probation with locating Reed inside the residence. We complied and entered the residence with a McKean County Probation Officer. It was then found that Reed had locked himself inside a bathroom. Reed was then advised Reed to exit the bathroom,he refused.
Officers then made entry into the bathroom. As soon as the door was opened, Reed attacked Officer by charging at him and attempting to strike him. During this time Reed was swinging his fist wildly at the Officer, Reed continued to fight, punch and kick at the Officer. A Taser was then deployed and after a short physical struggle Reed was then secured in handcuffs and removed from the residence.
Reed was subsequently transported to the City of Bradford Police Station and charges were filed. Reed was subsequently remanded to McKean County Jail.
