Brooks Hearing Delayed In CA

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Former Nevada Assemblyman Steven Brooks was in a California court Friday on charges stemming from a car chase and police confrontation in March.

The case was continued again to June 18th when Brooks waived his right to a ten day preliminary hearing.

Brooks’ defense had asked earlier this month that he be enrolled in a mental health court program that would allow him out on probation and hold him accountable for receiving mental health treatment. That plan was rejected.

Brooks has been in a San Bernardino County jail since his March 28 arrest along Interstate 15 in Victorville.

That came the same day Nevada lawmakers voted to expel Brooks from the Legislature following his streak of erratic behavior.
