   Judge Sentences Man to 1 Year for Eluding State Trooper on I - 264 in Norfolk
   NORFOLK , Va . — A Norfolk Circuit Court judge sentenced Lashun Sylvester Bradshaw , 21 , on Friday to one year in prison for eluding police and obstructing justice after recklessly speeding on the downtown corridor of Interstate 264 last summer .
   On July 1 , 2023 , Mr . Bradshaw was driving a vehicle westbound on I - 264 near the Brambleton Avenue exit and passed by a Virginia State Police trooper running their LiDAR scanner at 84 mph . When the trooper activated their lights and attempted to pull Mr . Bradshaw over , Mr . Bradshaw began weaving in and out of traffic and reached 90 mph as he crossed the Berkley Bridge toward I - 464 . After passing the Berkley Avenue exit , Mr . Bradshaw pulled over onto the shoulder and switched seats with one of his two friends riding in the vehicle as passengers .
   After Chesapeake Police officers arrived , each of the vehicle’s occupants were detained and questioned . The individual who switched seats with Mr . Bradshaw admitted to doing so , and Mr . Bradshaw confirmed that they switched seats and that he had been driving . Mr . Bradshaw’s reasoning for eluding and for switching seats was because he had been on probation and did not want to go to prison . Mr . Bradshaw was on probation at the time of this incident for April 2023 Virginia Beach convictions of larceny and brandishing a firearm .
   Mr . Bradshaw was charged with felony eluding and misdemeanor obstruction of justice , and the other occupant who switched seats with Mr . Bradshaw was also charged with misdemeanor obstruction of justice .
   On Oct . 30 , Mr . Bradshaw pleaded guilty to his charges pursuant to a plea agreement that called for a sentence of up to one year in prison , and Judge Everett A . Martin Jr . accepted his plea .
   On Friday , Judge Martin sentenced Mr . Bradshaw to one year in prison , and suspended an additional two years on the condition that Mr . Bradshaw complete an indeterminate period of supervised probation upon his release .
   “Eluding the police endangers the driver , the police , and the whole community , ” said Commonwealth’s Attorney Ramin Fatehi . “If the police turn on their lights , you must stop . All Mr . Bradshaw had to do was pull over , and he would not have faced a felony conviction or a felony sentence . "
   Assistant Commonwealth’s Attorney J . Drew Fairbanks prosecuted Mr . Bradshaw’s case on behalf of the Commonwealth , and Virginia State Police Trooper Kyle Rose led the investigation .
