Albany man who fled police sentenced to prison

ALBANY -- An Albany man who led police on a high-speed chase in March is now headed to prison.

Rudolph Bradley, 32, was sentenced to 1 1/2 to 3 years behind bars after pleading guilty to reckless endangerment. Early in the morning on March 1, Bradley was seen driving the wrong way down a one-way street in Albany. When a cop tried to pull him over, he fled, leading officers on a chase for several blocks.

When Bradley crashed into a large snow bank, he and a passenger, Todd Watkins, 45, got out of the vehicle and fled the scene, but were found shortly after in a nearby parking garage.

A search of the two suspects and the vehicle turned up a baggie containing more than 11 grams of heroin in Watkins' pocket. Watkins pleaded guilty to attempted criminal sale of a controlled substance and was sentenced to 3 years in prison followed by 2 years of post-release supervision.
