PHOENIX — A man accused of carjacking several vehicles while naked and
causing crashes that injured seven people in Scottsdale has pleaded guilty in
Maricopa County prosecutors said 45-year-old John Hugh Brigham, of Gilbert,
pleaded guilty Wednesday to robbery, aggravated assault, transportation theft
and three counts of endangerment.
The former real estate agent and high school teacher is scheduled to be
sentenced Jan. 23.
Scottsdale police took Brigham to a hospital for an evaluation after the June
29 incident and a toxicology test showed he had the drug PCP in his system.
Witnesses said the carjacker exited a vehicle after the first crash, took off
his clothes and stole another vehicle.
Police said four people were injured in the second crash, including a pregnant
woman who suffered two broken legs.
