A man with a long history of felony and misdemeanor crimes was back in court again Tuesday, facing his fifth charge relating to car theft in the past year.
Nickolas N. Davis, 28, was ordered held on $7,500 bond on his most recent charge of theft of a motor vehicle. In 2013 he was charged with possession of a stolen vehicle four times and pled guilty to attempting to elude a police vehicle. Spokane County Superior Court Judge Greg Sypolt also imposed a $7,500 bond on each of the 2013 stolen vehicle cases, which have not yet gone to trial.
Sypolt noted that Davis has failed to appear in court 25 times and his previous cases include charges of intimidating a witness and bribing a witness.
Davis was released to the care of American Behavior Health Systems on Jan. 22 for a drug treatment program and ordered to appear in drug court, but court documents state that Davis never showed up for court. He was arrested Monday driving a car that he allegedly stole from a former girlfriend, court documents state.
