RGI.com A former trucking company employee was arrested Thursday morning after stealing and driving a tractor trailer through the entrance of the Moonlite Bunny Ranch brothel in Mound House, Nev. The suspect, later identified as 40-year-old Brian Brandt of Reno, was charged with assault with a deadly weapon, destruction of property of another and possession of stolen property, a news release from the Lyon County Sheriff’s Office said. He is being held at the Yerington Detention Facility. The Director of Community Relations for Central Transport Mickey Blashfield said a Nevada manager contacted the trucking company’s headquarters Thursday morning saying the former employee caused property damage at the terminal and stole a vehicle and freight. “He showed up early this morning at the terminal and commandeered a truck,” Blashfield said. “The next thing we heard was a call from the Bunny Ranch about an incident taking place there.” “So far, it thankfully appears to be only property damage,” he said. “But, who knows what was happening during that time before he crashed or what his ultimate intentions were.” At around 4:04 a.m., deputies responded to a report of a tractor trailer that backed up through the front gate and entrance of the brothel, Michael Carlson with the Lyon County Sheriff’s Office said. Brothel owner Dennis Hof said in a phone call to the Reno Gazette-Journal that the suspect “jumped out of the truck with full body armor and a mask.” Hof said the front of the brothel was “demolished.” Carlson said no weapons were recovered on scene, and no injuries were reported. Brandt was previously arrested by the Sparks Police Department on May 17 and charged with battery and conspiracy to destroy property, according to the Washoe County Sheriff’s Office booking sheet. The Sparks Police Department did not return the Reno Gazette-Journal’s request for comment. Blashfield said the incident surrounding Brandt’s first arrest was the “reason his company ties were severed.” “It’s horrifying,” Hof said. “It’s horrifying that this can happen. If this guy was arrested last week, why let him out again?”
I do not understand what Brian Brandt’s intentions were when he stole a truck and intentionally rammed it into the legendary Moonlight Bunny Ranch, because he hopped out of the truck wearing a mask and full body armor, but was quickly arrested and found to be unarmed despite initial fear that he was ready for a battle due to his armor. Luckily for Dennis Hof and his prostitutes, nobody was injured during this bizarre incident, Brandt caused nothing more than property damage with his truck and the Bunny Ranch can be repaired. Maybe Brandt is the world’s biggest Lamar Odom fan, and he wanted revenge for his favorite NBA player’s overdose and near death experience at the Moonlight Bunny Ranch last year, was he wearing a Lamar Odom jersey under his body armor?
