FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – A 29-year-old man accused of attacking a DEA agent outside a Fort Lauderdale sports bar appeared before a Broward County judge Tuesday to face new charges.

Gregory Bradley, 29, now faces charges of aggravated battery on a law enforcement officer and aggravated battery with a deadly weapon. His bond was increased from $11,000 to $20,000.

The incident happened March 5 at Bokampers Sports Bar & Grill.

According to arrest report, the DEA agents were dining at the restaurant, where Bradley and friend Steven Jenrette work as cooks, when they pushed one of the agents for no reason.

The confrontation spilled into the parking lot, where the agents showed the men their badges, and tried to get Bradley and Jenrette to calm down, police said.

Jenrette distracted the agents while Bradley picked up a football-size concrete block and hit one of the agents in the head, police said.

The officer who was hit in the head was taken to a hospital with a concussion.

Bradley was arrested at the scene. Jenrette was arrested days later.

Bradley's next court date was set for July 10.
