A Nevada lawmaker has been arrested on suspicion of threatening to harm a fellow legislator in a case that has prompted security protection to be provided for two top legislative leaders.You don't have to be crazy bo bt a Nevada Democrat, but it helps...
North Las Vegas police said Sunday that they began a search for Assemblyman Steven Brooks, D-North Las Vegas, on Saturday after receiving corroborating witness statements supporting the victim's report of a threat. Police didn't identify the lawmaker who reported the threat.
Brooks was taken into custody without incident during a traffic stop late Saturday afternoon in his hometown, police said, and he was booked into the Las Vegas jail on a felony count of intimidating a public officer by threat of physical violence. He remained in jail Sunday afternoon, and it wasn't immediately known whether he had a lawyer.
Assembly Majority Leader William Horne, D-Las Vegas, declined to comment on the target of the threat but said he and Assembly Speaker Marilyn Kirkpatrick have been provided security protection because of it.
"All I can say is Assemblyman Brooks made some threats that gave concern to us and to law enforcement, and it was determined for a level of precaution that we get security details until this gets worked out," Horne told The Associated Press.
