Suspects in chase, officer shooting make first court appearances
LAWTON, Okla. (KSWO) - Two suspects in the shooting of an officer during a chase earlier this week in Comanche County made their first court appearances Wednesday.
Investigators said Brandi Crosby was the driver in that chase and Larry Hardison was the one who opened fire, wounding Lawton Police officer John Bordelon. According to court documents, officer Bordelon’s lapel microphone was hit and he was shot in the face.
He was later taken to a hospital before being released.
Investigators said Crosby’s erratic driving throughout the chase endangered the lives of others, including driving on the shoulder of a road at points.
Crosby was charged with endangering others while eluding police, accessory to a felony and possession of a firearm after a former felony conviction while Hardison was charged with shooting with intent to kill, use of a vehicle in the discharge of a weapon and possession of a firearm after a former felony conviction.
During their first court appearance Wednesday, Crosby’s bond was set at $500,000 while Hardison’s was set at $1,000,000.
Both are set to appear in court again for a preliminary hearing conference on April 4.
