LAS VEGAS -- A former Nevada lawmaker was in court Thursday on felony and misdemeanor charges stemming from his Feb. 2013 arrest.
Steven Brooks, 42, a Democrat from North Las Vegas, was booked into the Clark County Detention Center Tuesday on charges of domestic battery, false statement, resisting a public officer with a firearm and assault on a protected person.
He has spent the past 16 months in jail for fighting with California police after a high-speed freeway chase and returned to Las Vegas to face the criminal charges.
Bail was set at $50,000 and the judge said he was also open to having Brooks under house arrest. A preliminary hearing has been scheduled for Aug. 21.
