Assemblyman Steven Brooks Faces Several Charges

Posted: Updated:

Nevada Assemblyman Steven Brooks faces several charges following an alleged domestic dispute with his estranged wife.

Clark County District Attorney Steve Wolfson announced the charges Monday.

Charges stem from a February 10th incident in which police say Brooks grabbed for an officer's gun during his Las Vegas arrest.

Brooks is charged by way of Criminal Complaint with one felony count of Resisting a Public Officer With Use of a Firearm, one gross misdemeanor count of Assault on an Officer, and two misdemeanors, including Battery Constituting Domestic Violence and Obstructing a Police Officer.

If convicted, the felony charge carries a maximum sentence of five years and $10,000 fine.

The station reports a summons has been issued for the legislator to appear in Las Vegas Justice Court.

The North Las Vegas Assemblyman is on paid leave and has been banned from the Legislature Building following two arrests and a hospitalization for a psychiatric evaluation.

His first arrest came January 19th after allegedly made threats against Assembly Speaker Marilyn Kirkpatrick, a fellow North Las Vegas Democrat.
