BEND, Ore. (AP) - A central Oregon deputy who grabbed a woman’s arm after a fender-bender crash in December has been fired.

The Bulletin reports (https://goo.gl/vhOujN) 40-year-old Bradley Wright was fired recently after the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office completed an internal investigation of the incident.

Sheriff Shane Nelson says a review of the criminal and internal investigations showed that Wright’s conduct violated office policies including ethics and professional standards; general conduct and personal conduct.

District Attorney John Hummel charged Wright with harassment but dropped the charge in February when Hummel announced Wright had completed a program which involved community service.

Prosecutors say Wright was off-duty when the crash occurred Dec. 24 outside a Bend Fred Meyer.

When the drivers left their vehicles to assess damage, Wright allegedly caused bruising by aggressively grabbing the 67-year-old woman’s arm.
