(LAS VEGAS, KXNT)–Former Nevada Assemblyman Steven Brooks, who was booted from the Assembly last year for repeated erratic behavior, has reportedly accepted a plea bargain in connection with a high-speed chase and confrontation with California Highway Patrol troopers a year ago.

The incident, which involved a fight with officers and a canine dog on the day Brooks was expelled from the state legislature.

Brooks has agreed to plead no contest to charges of evading a police officer and resisting a police officer. He will receive a lighter sentence for that plea. He is set to be sentenced July 25th.

Brooks has been jailed in San Bernadino County California since the March 2013 incident. He faces a number of charges in Nevada including a weapons charge, allegations he threatened a fellow lawmaker and a physical run-in with Metro Police during a domestic incident at a relative’s home.
