Police: Nev. Lawmaker Reached for Cop's Gun During Arrest

February 11, 2013  | 

Nevada Assemblyman Steven Brooks, already facing possible charges for threatening to harm a legislative leader, was arrested for the second time in less than a month early Sunday, this time on charges of domestic battery and obstructing an officer.

Las Vegas police said they arrested Brooks after arriving at a home on Turtle River Avenue at 12:18 a.m. to investigate reports of a domestic battery.

"Brooks was agitated and refused to obey officers' commands. When officers attempted to take Brooks into custody he fought with them, and at one point attempted to secure one of the officers weapons," police stated in a press release.
