  • Nevada Democrat accused of grabbing cops gun

    Troubled Nevada Assemblyman Steven Brooks was arrested early Sunday in Las Vegas on suspicion of physically attacking a family member, then grabbing for an officer's weapon.

    The arrest came only days after the North Las Vegas Democrat embarked on a three-week leave following a string of bizarre events that began with his Jan. 19 arrest for allegedly threatening Assembly Speaker Marilyn Kirkpatrick.

    Brooks, 40, was "agitated" and refused to obey officers' orders when they arrived to find him outside a home after responding to a report of a domestic dispute, according to police. Brooks is accused of fighting and grabbing for an officer's weapon as they tried to arrest him shortly after midnight.

    Police spokesman Bill Cassell said the domestic dispute occurred inside the home, but he did not know the identity of the homeowner. No other details about the dispute were immediately available. Las Vegas police have a policy of not identifying the relationships of domestic dispute victims to suspects, Cassell said.

    Brooks was booked into the Clark County Detention Center on misdemeanor charges of domestic battery and obstructing a public officer. His bail was set at $4,000, and he awaits an initial court appearance Monday morning.

    What?  No takers in the anti gun crowd?  No takers in the Dem's is bad crowd?  No takers in the "That is only one man and not representative of the rest" crowd?

     

    How about a holster lock?

      Ok, I'll bite.

      Who cares? **************** like that happens every day all over the country. When republicans go crazy and do it in the suburbs, it's called mass murder. When democrats go crazy and do it in the cities, it's called gang violence. Sometimes there are cross-overs.

      How do you know he didn't have one?

       

      "The arrest came only days after the Assembly announced the unprecedented creation of a seven-member committee to investigate Brooks' behavior. Under the Nevada Constitution, lawmakers are given authority to judge the qualifications of their own members.

      Assembly Majority Leader William Horne, D-Las Vegas, who will chair the bipartisan panel, said Sunday that Brooks' arrests reflect ongoing concerns about his fitness to serve.

      "It's unfortunate that these things are happening in Mr. Brooks' life, and I'm grateful no one was injured," he told the Associated Press. "I'm not a mental expert. But I would agree it has shown some signs that Mr. Brooks is dealing with problems that may distract from his ability to do the service he was elected to do.""

      That is only one man.....as you obviously can see, his behavior has been in question for quite some time. But you go right ahead and mislead all you need to. It's what we have all become accustomed to when you post.
