LAS VEGAS (AP) — A former Nevada lawmaker has been indicted on a felony firearms charge stemming from an arrest in January in North Las Vegas that began a spiral leading to his expulsion from the Legislature.

Prosecutor Thom Gover said Thursday the possession of a firearm by a prohibited person charge against Steven Brooks alleges that he shouldn't have had a gun because he was an unlawful marijuana user.

A conviction could get Brooks up to four years in state prison.

Brooks' lawyer, Mitchell Posin, calls the charge a stretch.

He says Brooks will plead not guilty.

Brooks is currently jailed in California's San Bernardino County, after pleading not guilty to resisting an officer, felony evading and assault on a police animal charges in a March 28 chase and arrest on Interstate 15.

So now, are we "secure" from this 'loose cannon'? Y not just summarize the indictment: "here"?, that's what Reporters do. This Ralston guy seems like a checkerboard 'square'.
