Ousted Assemblyman Brooks gets new court date in California case


A California court date was pushed back again for a former Las Vegas-area lawmaker jailed since a freeway chase and scuffle with police the day he was expelled in March from the Nevada Assembly.

Prosecutor Shannon Faherty said a Friday court date for Steven Brooks was reset to Jan. 10 in San Bernardino County Superior Court in Victorville at his lawyer’s request.

Brooks’ defense attorney, Sean O’Connor, didn’t immediately respond to a message.

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