Court date reset for ousted Nevada Assemblyman Brooks

A California pretrial hearing has been delayed for former Nevada Assemblyman Steven Brooks, who has been jailed since March in a freeway chase and scuffle with officers the day he was expelled from the Legislature.

Prosecutor Shannon Faherty said a Friday court date was reset to Dec. 6 in San Bernardino County Superior Court in Victorville.

Faherty said Brooks’ defense attorney is tied up with an unrelated murder trial at another courthouse.

Brooks pleaded not guilty Aug. 6 to felony evasion, obstructing an officer and throwing a substance at a police vehicle charges and misdemeanor harming a police animal.

He’s being held at the San Bernardino County Jail on $100,000 bail.

The Democrat from North Las Vegas was expelled from the Legislature March 28 as a security threat.
