LAS VEGAS (AP) — A former Nevada state lawmaker has pleaded not guilty to a gun charge dating to allegations that he threatened to harm an Assembly leader days before the 2013 legislative session began.

Prosecutor Thom Gover said a judge on Tuesday scheduled a jury trial for Steven Brooks to begin Oct. 6.

But Clark County District Court Judge Abbi Silver also set an Aug. 28 pretrial status check.

The case is one of two pending against the 42-year-old Brooks.

He spent 16 months in a California jail for a March 2013 freeway chase and fight with police that happened the day he was expelled from the state Legislature.

He’s jailed awaiting a Thursday preliminary hearing on felony and misdemeanor charges dating to a February 2013 scuffle with police investigating a domestic dispute.
