Carson City Sheriff’s Deputies converged on a dwelling in the 31-hundred block of South Carson Street Sunday. Upon arrival deputies discovered a brutal domestic violence incident – the female victim with a head injury and a stab wound to her neck – her accused assailant, James Bricky, 42, covered in blood.
Deputies managed to get the female victim out and transported to a Reno Trauma Unit. Officers say Bricky was still hold-up inside, refusing to come out. Eventually he surrendered. Bricky, who has a long criminal record in California and Nevada, was arrested for attempted murder – due his stabbing his victim in the neck. Bricky was also arrested for illegal possession of a gun and domestic battery with the use of a deadly weapon.
Bricky is being held in the Carson City Jail with a court appearance scheduled later this week.

The Nevada Department of Motor Vehicles is warning motorists about a speeding ticket scam that has surfaced in Nevada..
On-line scammers are sending out emails, claiming to be from the DMV, about traffic violations that can only be paid online with a credit card.
The emails demand payment of a fine within 72 hours and contain links for “EasyPay” or to contest the citation.
HOWEVER! The Nevada DMV does not issue traffic citations or collect fines, according to Director Julie Butler.
“It’s unfortunate that these criminals are posing as the DMV to scam innocent people,” Butler said. “Don’t click on the links. The scammers are after your personal information and your device could be infected with malware.”
Citations in Nevada are written by law enforcement officers and handled in municipal courts. Nevada does not have any automated systems for traffic enforcement. Motorists are never notified of a violation by email.
