Ex-con indicted in Las Vegas police chase, shooting

A 30-year-old Nevada ex-convict has been indicted on attempted murder, assault with a deadly weapon and multiple other felony charges after he was accused of exchanging gunfire with Las Vegas police during a vehicle chase last month.

Joshua William Bacharach is due for arraignment July 28 in Clark County District Court following his indictment Wednesday.

No one was wounded after police and prosecutors say Bacharach opened fire at police from a vehicle a little before 11 p.m. June 26 northeast of downtown Las Vegas.

Authorities say Officer Ryan McNabb had trouble communicating by radio with other police while exchanging gunfire with Bacharach near East Carey Avenue and Dolly Lane.

Police with dogs located and arrested Bacharach nearby.

Bacharach is being held at the Clark County jail without bail.
