PINELLAS, Fla. A Pinellas sheriff's deputy begins a four-day suspension today after sheriff's administrators determined he ran a red light during a chase and crashed into another vehicle, injuring a woman.

Deputy John Bradshaw ran the light at 38th Avenue North and 49th Street in St. Petersburg at 1:30 a.m. Sept. 22, according to sheriff's internal affairs documents released Wednesday. Bradshaw's cruiser struck a Toyota 4Runner driven by Grace Mariano Umali. Riding as a passenger was Umali's son, the sheriff's office said at the time.
