Polk sheriff: Mayor parked in City Hall handicapped spot using deceased's decal

Share

Davenport, Florida, Mayor Darlene Bradley was caught using handicapped parking placards belonging to people who had died years before.

The mayor of a small Florida city has been arrested on allegations that she used dead people's disabled parking permits to park at City Hall.

Deputies said they began investigating Teresa Bradley, 60, after a tipster told them in November that Bradley was parking in handicapped spaces, even though she didn't have a handicapped placard.

She was released after posting the $2,250 bond.

Records from the Office of the Polk County Tax Collector confirmed that neither Bradley nor her husband had any documentation issued to them indicating that they were handicapped, a news release said.

The mayor of Davenport was arrested after deputies say she was discovered using deceased persons' handicapped parking placards.

On Nov. 8, deputies said they observed her placing a placard on the rear-view mirror of her Crown Victoria to park in one of two handicapped spots, then removing it when she returned.

During a search warrant of Bradley's home, deputies found two handicapped placards issued to two different victims, one who died in 2012 and another who died in 2015.

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. Deputies did not say how she obtained the handicap decal.

County Sheriff Grady Judd said Bradley "embarrassed the citizens of Davenport".

"We were shocked", Callihan said after Bradley's arrest adding that she would have to step down if she is convicted, and the governor could also intervene and suspend her until her trial is completed.
