Bradley Sturdiant was arrested by Camden County deputies in June after he was accused of a racially-motivated attack that happened at a bar at the Lake of the Ozarks.


A man was charged in Camden County on Monday for an alleged racially-motivated attack at a Lake Ozark restaurant.

Bradley Sturdivant, 40, of Lake Ozark, faces a felony count for an assault motivated by discrimination in connection with a fight that happened early in the morning on June 2.

Strudivant allegedly got into a fight with a person at Shady Gators at the Lake of the Ozarks. Court documents say a worker at the bar was asked to remove Sturdivant. His probable cause statement shows Sturdivant called the worker a racial slur and asked him if he "wanted to go back to Africa on the banana boat." Deputies say he was also aggressive with the worker.

Camden County deputies arrested Sturdivant after they were called to the bar around 1:30 a.m.

Deputies placed Sturdivant in a 24-hour hold at the Camden County Jail. Online court documents don't list an attorney for Sturdivant.
