Men face mayhem charges

Wednesday, January 25, 2017
Logan V. Bradshaw


The Idaho Supreme Court Data Repository had not been updated yesterday at press time. Court documents filed at the Elmore County Court House state a motion to dismiss was granted to the prosecution as of Jan. 24.

The victim was unable to be located to serve as a witness. Due to the uncooperative nature of the witness the prosecutor's office asked for a dismissal of the felony mayhem charge.

Raul Lopez Jr.


An early-morning altercation at the Meadows Mobile Home Park on Jan. 9 ended in three arrests and left another hospitalized.

Logan V. Bradshaw and Raul Lopez Jr. were arrested and charged with felony mayhem after they allegedly "held down the victim and bit off a chunk of his ear" or aided in the incident, according to information from the arresting Elmore County Deputy.

  • Funny thing about this article...Logan had nothing to do with any of that. Hence the reason he's no longer incarcerated...weird. So maybe the names and mugshots that are being used for the FRONT page of this towns paper should be reconsidered because it's false information. You're making someone who's innocent seem like some type of Mike Tyson. Let's get our facts straight before broadcasting it all over the front page of a NEWSPAPER. I'd greatly appreciate it...Thanks.

    Response by Brenda Fincher, Publisher, MHNews:
    We will continue to followup on any proceedings and any results after press time to the original arrest and charges and court documents. Thank you
  • The Idaho Repository, available on the Internet, shows the charges were dismissed on motion of the prosecutor at a hearing yesterday Jan. 24th, at 10AM.

  • The charge against Logan, that is. Also, the officer listed on the case is an Elmore County Deputy, not a City Investigator.

  • Thank you Geoff! But their response was that they got their information FROM the repository...Maybe before making people's business so public they should wait it out to see what actually happened because I know my brother isn't the first person this has happened to. Very pathetic and disappointing.

  • And to make matters worse you people over at Mountain Home News put his background in the paper. If I recall right shouldn't that be sealed considering at that time he was a juvenile?

  • How could the offense have happened on January 9 if the charge against Lopez Jr., which has NOT been dismissed, was filed on Jan. 4th with a violation date of Jan. 9th, according to the Repository?

  • I mistyped: The Repository says the violation date was Jan. 3rd.

  • I can appreciate going to bat for a sibling and trying to defend them, natural instinct. But after reading the long list of charges in the Repository over the span of several years (drug paraphernalia, assault, battery, bullying, contempt, alcohol, etc.), I don't think seeing his picture in the paper with new potential charges is dragging a name through the mud. It seems like a simple law of averages- the more times you put yourself out there in a negative light, and the more times you establish that reputation, the more likely your name will make a short of people to look into when crimes occur. It is unfortunate if he truly had absolutely no ties whatsoever to anybody that has been accused in this crime, and this entire article came out of the blue to blindside him. That would be unfortunate. But running with the wrong crowd, and the crowd gets in trouble with or without you involved, it seems very likely that you will get sucked into the process of establishing who did what and which charges will ultimately stick or be dismissed after due process.

    Wow, I didn't know we had a criminal statistician in Mountain Home. Just goes to show you how far our small town has come. The whole message here is a little fuzzy for me though...Is it innocent until proven guilty, guilty until proven innocent, guilt by association, or guilty "cuz I said so." Well, while that's being sorted out, hopefully we can withhold judgement on the people involved in a developing investigation and not bash a girl for supporting her brother.
