Brandy Leonard II

Oregon State Police say a son used his truck as a weapon against his father after an altercation while driving on Independence Day, nine miles east of Waldport.

Trooper David Wertz said he was dispatched to investigate a vehicle versus pedestrian crash around 9:30 p.m. when he made contact with two men, one of whom had life threatening injuries and needed to be transported by Life Flight to Sacred Heart Riverbend Hospital in Springfield.

Brandy Collins Leonard II, 26, of Waldport, admitted to Wertz he was the driver of a Chevy Silverado truck and he and the victim were father and son. Further investigation by Wertz revealed the two had a fight while driving and the son stopped the vehicle to allow his father, Brandy Collins Leonard, 47, of Toledo, to exit. Once the father was outside, the son struck him with the vehicle. The son then exited the truck and continued to assault his father.

Wertz said the son was exhibiting signs of alcohol impairment and performed DUII tests poorly.

Brandy Leonard II was taken into custody and lodged at the Lincoln County Jail where he faces charges of attempted murder, assault and DUII. His bail is set at $650,000.

The condition of the father, Brandy Collins Leonard, is unknown at this time. According to Sacred Heart medical staff, he is not in their system as of 2 p.m. July 6.

  1. Alcohol is a dangerous drug, but that doesn’t make marijuana a safer
    choice. People still make bad decisions while high, that’s why it’s regulated. From personal experience I can assure you that people that rely on any controlled substance for entertainment are spinning their wheels.
    Sobriety from mind altering drugs is an eye opening experience. I’ve been there and done that, there’s nothing to be gained by further use, and legalizing marijuana was a mistake in the way it’s been done and marketed.
    These persons clearly had issues to begin with, just like the sociopaths
    who were arrested-and released after the incident at Salishan on the 4rth.
