According to a probable cause statement filed in 2nd District Court, Brady was driving a maroon 2005 Pontiac Grand Am on June 24 with his girlfriend, Nicole Gear, 23, in the passenger seat.

Near 3100 W. Midland Drive, Brady lost control of the vehicle after he veered into oncoming traffic and over-corrected, going off the roadway.

Brady struck a light pole and then careened through a fence before hitting a parked truck, traveling about 300 feet from the roadway, according to court documents.

According to the probable cause statement, Utah Highway Patrol investigators believe Brady was driving between 95 and 110 mph on the road, which has a posted speed limit of 50 mph.

Brady will be sentenced on May 24. He faces up to a year in jail.
