Former Nevada Lawmaker Pleads No Contest in California

Posted: Updated:

A former Las Vegas-area lawmaker has pleaded no contest to charges stemming from a freeway chase and a fight with police in Southern California.
 
Steven Brooks entered into a plea bargain Friday, exactly a year after he was expelled from the Nevada Assembly as a security threat and hours later arrested in Victorville, Calif., after a high-speed chase on Interstate 15.
 
The Victorville (Calif.) Daily Press reports (http://bit.ly/1hGqzQD ) Brooks pleaded no contest to evading a peace officer and resisting arrest in San Bernardino County Superior Court after prosecutors agreed to drop charges of willful harm to a police dog and throwing a substance at a vehicle.
 
The 42-year-old former North Las Vegas Democrat is scheduled to be sentenced July 25.  (AP)
