LAS VEGAS (KSNV MyNews3) -- Former Nevada Assemblyman Steven Brooks is due back in a southern California courtroom today to face charges related to his arrest near Barstow in March.
Meanwhile, his attorney will be appearing on his behalf here in Las Vegas for another incident that happened in February.
There is an evidentiary hearing in Las Vegas on criminal allegations that brooks attacked a police officer during a domestic dispute in February at his wife’s home.
He plans to also plead not guilty to one felony count of resisting an officer and three lesser charges stemming from that day.
His attorney will be present on his behalf for that hearing because Brooks is still being held in southern California on charges related to a high-speed chase on March 28.
It was just hours after brooks was expelled from the legislature that Barstow, Calif., police say he led authorities on a high speed chase that ended with a very violent arrest on the side of the freeway.
A few days later, brooks pleaded not guilty to all the charges.
He was supposed to return to court April 9 via closed-circuit video. But his attorney, Mitch Posin, asked to postpone the hearing because he needed more time to review information in the case.
That hearing is scheduled for later this morning in Victorville, Calif.
