LAS VEGAS (AP) — A lawyer entered a not guilty plea before a local judge on behalf of the 73-year-old brother of U.S. Sen. Harry Reid and obtained a July trial date on misdemeanor driving under the influence, battery, weapons and seatbelt charges.
Attorney David Brown said Tuesday that Larry Joe Reid didn't appear for the brief hearing before Boulder City Justice of the Peace Victor Miller.
The judge will also decide July 14 if a battery on a police officer charge should advance to state court for trial.
Reid was arrested about mid-day Feb. 2. A Nevada Highway Patrol trooper reported finding him sitting in his SUV on a highway 95 median near Searchlight, Nevada.
A police report says Reid tried to drive away and punched the trooper before his arrest.
