Justice is blind, and that’s good, or she might be embarrassed by the case of a Phoenix-area man who stripped naked during a recent madcap skein in which he caused crashes that injured seven people in suburban Scottsdale, closing several roads and causing witnesses to cover their eyes.
On Thursday, a Maricopa County Superior Court judge set a cash-only bond of $100,000 for 45-year-old John Hugh Brigham on charges that he carjacked one car and attempted to steal another, injuring several victims, including a pregnant woman nearly at full term who suffered two broken legs.
A Scottsdale police officer took Brigham into custody at gunpoint in the June 29 incident. Evaluations later showed that Brigham had the drug PCP in his system during his rampage, police said. The drug, commonly known as angel dust, causes hallucinations and violent behavior.
“He looked like he was crazy. He definitely looked like a madman,” an eyewitness told Fox news.
Police allege that Brigham initially drove his car into a Porsche, sending the sportscar smashing into a third vehicle. The driver of the Porsche was thrown from his car and sustained serious injuries.
