A Virginia Beach police officer who stabbed two Accomack County firefighters and then shot at one of them is facing new charges.

State police tell NewsChannel 3 that Bradley Colas is now charged with attempted murder and use of a firearm in the commission of a felony.

NewsChannel 3 was in court last week when Colas testified that he was having a severe psychotic reaction to a common antibiotic called Biaxin.

The officer told the court that after starting the prescription, he developed tormenting hallucinations about demons.

He testified that he was compelled to race to Philadelphia to see Jesus when he crashed his car on route 13.

He said he believed the firefighters dispatched to help him were evil.

That`s why he attacked them.

He is being held in jail without bond.
