Ex-Nev. Lawmaker Brooks Sentenced To Calif. Prison

VICTORVILLE, Calif. (AP) — A former Nevada lawmaker who led California police on a high-speed chase on the day he was expelled from the state Assembly has been ordered to two years and eight months in prison.

Steven Brooks was sentenced Friday, after pleading no contest in March to evading a peace officer and resisting arrest in the March 28, 2013 pursuit along Interstate 15. Prosecutors agreed to drop charges alleging he threw an object out of his SUV and attacked a police dog.

Brooks was being held in a San Bernardino jail.

The freeway confrontation came hours after he was ousted from the Nevada legislature by colleagues who cited a pattern of bizarre behavior, and said they didn’t feel safe around him.
