PHOENIX — A naked man accused of running through a Scottsdale intersection and causing a crash moments after police say he carjacked a driver has backed out of a plea deal.
KSAZ-TV reports that John Brigham changed his mind on the plea deal Friday. That’s when his lawyers said they were withdrawing a guilty plea and would be going to trial to fight the carjacking charges.
Police say the bizarre case began when Brigham carjacked a vehicle and caused a crash in June 2012. Brigham also faces robbery and aggravated assault charges.
One woman was injured in the crash.
