LAS VEGAS (AP) — A judge set $50,000 bail and ordered house arrest for a former Nevada state assemblyman now held in Las Vegas on felony and misdemeanor allegations that he tried to grab a police officer's gun during a domestic dispute call in February 2013.

Steven Brooks also is being held on $100,000 bail on a separate firearms charge stemming from a January 2013 arrest.

It wasn't immediately clear Thursday if Brooks or his family could post $150,000 for his release before an Aug. 18 status check and an Aug. 21 preliminary hearing.

Brooks' new attorney, Adam Gill, declined comment.

Brooks was returned in custody this week to Las Vegas after serving 16 months in jail for a freeway chase and fight with California police in March 2013.

LAS VEGAS (AP) — A former Nevada lawmaker who spent 16 months in jail for fighting with California police after a high-speed freeway chase is back in Las Vegas to face criminal charges resulting from an earlier arrest.

Records show Steven Brooks was returned Tuesday in custody from San Bernardino County after pleading no contest in March to evading a peace officer and resisting arrest.

A California judge on July 25 sentenced Brooks to time served since his arrest the day he was expelled from the Nevada Legislature in March 2013.

The 42-year-old Democrat from North Las Vegas is due Thursday before a Las Vegas judge on felony and misdemeanor charges stemming from his February 2013 arrest in Nevada.

He's accused of trying to grab a police officer's gun during a domestic dispute call.
