Troubled 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 he embarked on a three-week leave amid formation of a select legislative committee to investigate him for a string of bizarre events that began with his arrest for allegedly threatening Assembly Speaker Marilyn Kirkpatrick.

Police say the North Las Vegas Democrat was "agitated'" and refused to obey officers' orders after they responded to a report of a domestic dispute and arrived to find him outside a home.

The 40-year-old Brooks is accused of grabbing for an officer's weapon as they tried to arrest him.

He was booked into jail on misdemeanor charges of domestic battery and obstructing an officer.

Sounds like paranoid schizophrenia to me. He needs to be hospitalized and get his meds checked by his Doctor.

I hope this is one person who has his gun rights removed... He is a danger to himself and his family and anyone else. This is a perfect example of someone with a mental disorder who needs help. This would be an area where I believe guns should be removed from him if he had any.

If this guy has tis kind of behavior on a regular basis why is he still in office??? I would hope that the panel that is looking at his behavior reaches the conclusion that the entire state wants. Let this guy go so he can serve his time in jail, find a real job and be banned from ever owning a firearm
