SCOTTSDALE, AZ - A man accused of carjacking several vehicles while naked and causing crashes that injured seven people in Scottsdale has pleaded guilty in the case.
Maricopa County prosecutors say 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 say the carjacker exited a vehicle after the first crash, took off his clothes and stole another vehicle.
Police say four people were injured in the second crash, including a pregnant woman who suffered two broken legs.
