VICTORVILLE, Calif. (AP) -- The lawyer for a former Nevada lawmaker charged in a car chase and a police confrontation is asking that his client go through a mental health court program.

Ex-Assemblyman Steven Brooks appeared in a San Bernardino County, Calif. court Tuesday after pleading not guilty to charges stemming from his arrest March 28. Prosecutors say there could be a decision Friday on whether he's eligible for mental health court.

Mental health courts divert people into treatment programs and hold them accountable along the way.

Brooks pleaded not guilty to resisting an officer, felony evading and assault on a police animal charges filed after his arrest in Victorville.

The arrest was his third in a matter of months, and followed bizarre behavior that prompted lawmakers to expel him from the Assembly.
