Man gets prison time in Scottsdale carjacking case

PHOENIX — A man accused of carjacking several vehicles while naked and
causing crashes that injured seven people in Scottsdale has been sentenced to 8
1/2 years in prison.

Maricopa County prosecutors say 46-year-old John Hugh Brigham of Gilbert also
was sentenced Friday to five years’ probation.

They say the ex-real estate agent and high school teacher entered into a plea
agreement and pleaded guilty to theft of means of transportation, aggravated
assault and three counts of endangerment.

Police took Brigham to a hospital for an evaluation after the June 2012
incident and a toxicology test showed he had the drug PCP in his system.

Witnesses say the carjacker exited a vehicle after the first crash, took off
his clothes and stole another vehicle. A pregnant woman was among those injured.
