NEWPORT, R.I. (AP) - A Newport man charged in the death of a Naval Station Newport police detective last year had been prohibited from driving on the base following an accident in 1988.

The Newport Daily News reports (https://bit.ly/IX5CGL ) that court records show Alan Bradley had an epileptic seizure while driving at the base in 1988 and was involved in an accident. He was prohibited from driving on the base.

Officials said Bradley was driving a government vehicle on Sept. 26, 2013, when he hit and killed Frank Lema of Middletown, who was walking.

Navy officials would not say Wednesday if he had been cleared to drive.

The 53-year-old Bradley pleaded not guilty to operating a motor vehicle in reckless disregard of the safety of others, resulting in death.

His lawyer declined to comment.
