Arraignment canceled for Marine accused of pushing two girls down bluff

VISTA (KUSI) – 1:45 p.m. – The arraignment for Bradley Huston, the Marine accused of pushing two females off an oceanfront bluff, was canceled Tuesday because of insufficient evidence. 

It was not clear if and when another arraignment would be held. 

11:04 a.m. – A 20-year-old Camp Pendleton Marine accused of pushing two females off of an oceanfront bluff in an argument was scheduled to be arraigned Tuesday.

Bradley Huston and another serviceman were engaging in a discussion last Tuesday with a 17-year-old girl and an 18-year-old woman near the cliff on Cerezo Drive in Carlsbad. When the discussion turned into a disagreement, Huston allegedly pushed the two females off of the bluff, sending them 10 to 15 feet to the ground below.

It was believed that alcohol played a part in the incident, according to officials, but the cause of the disagreement was not known.

Huston was taken into custody later in the day thanks to assistance from the Camp Pendleton provost marshal.
