After pleading no contest in a vehicle pursuit case dating back nearly two years, Chelsea Brooks will be back in court Thursday for more discussions.


Brooks agreed to plead no contest to one count of assault on a law enforcement officer in July after an incident in December 2018, where she allegedly led a chase from Emporia to western Osage County and nearly hit several law enforcement vehicles along the way. Several weeks later, she asked to withdraw the plea, citing ineffective counsel, but she withdrew that motion earlier this month.

The case is now set for a plea hearing at 10 am in Lyon County District Court.
