LAS VEGAS (AP) - A court hearing in California has been postponed to next month for a former Las Vegas-area lawmaker jailed on felony charges following a freeway chase and violent struggle with police the same day he was expelled from the Nevada state Assembly.

A San Bernardino County district attorney spokesman said Tuesday that a judge in Barstow set a May 7 date for Steven Brooks to appear in court, and a May 9 date for a preliminary hearing.

Brooks' attorney in Nevada, Mitchell Posin, says the delay allows time to get Brooks into a court-ordered psychiatric counseling program.

Brooks pleaded not guilty a week ago to charges including resisting an officer, felony evading and assault on a police animal stemming from his March 28 arrest on Interstate 15 near Victorville.
