Bradley "Brad" Ackerman is Suze's jock step brother. Suze nicknames him 'Dopey' for being the dumbest of the the three Ackerman brothers.

In Darkest Hour, Maria de Silva curses some organic orange juice and Dopey, being a guy, drinks it staright from the carton and gets a mouthful of bugs.

This is just before Dopey and Andy find Jesse's body in their yard, digging to install a new hot tub which gets fully installed at the end of the book. It is also noted that Dopey, living up to his nickname, crushes Jesse's skull and badly damaging it with his spade.
