RENO, Nev. (KRNV & -- A Carson City man is out on bail after being chared with assaulting the director of Nevada's Department of Transportation and disturbing the peace.

News 4 reported earlier this week that the NDOT director was evading being served a subpoena and accidentally ran over Robben's foot. The director declined an interview about the incident, but a spokesperson said Robben was running after her and pounding on the back windows of her car.

Robben's bail was $2000.

Good news: November 13, 2012 “Assault” charge was dropped and “dismissed” against Robben in the former NDOT Director Hit-and-Run case where Robben was actually hit and then wrongfully charged as he attempted to serve a subpoena to the evading former NDOT Director.

It is obvious the state is protecting one of their own!! Why run from being served a subpoena? The AG's office provides legal services to state employees being sued! NDOT's Director is obviously dirty!!

Robben will prevail and be vindicated unless corruption persists. For all the facts and law of the case see:

Martinovich said she did not want to press charges against Robben, yet Robben was originally charged with harassment. That charge was dropped and DA Neil Rombardo added assault and breach of peace. These will not sick as a matter of law. However, in Carson City, Nevada where Robben is public enemy #1 to the corrupt justice system - the rule of law will not matter because this is all about revenge and retaliation. The gang in black robes want Robben in jail to shut him down for exposing their corruption and protesting with CRIME SCENE tape! Robben was there to serve a subpena and not assault anyone. Martinovich fled. How does Robben, who has publicly stated the entire Carson City court is corrupt, get justice when he is directly in their 'cross hairs' with no jury trial? The judges will not comply with the law and disqualify themselves after being formally moved to do so. They won't move the hearing or bring in another hopefully honest judge from somewhere else. See the plan? Trumped up charges of 'ASSAULT' Here you go, no case against Robben. Robben was there to serve court papers - NOT to commit a violent injury on the person of another of another". "Mere menace is not enough. There must be an effort to carry the intention into execution." Under NRS 200.471, an "assault" is "an unlawful attempt, coupled with a present ability, to commit a violent injury on the person of another." As we said in Wilkerson v. State, 87 Nev. 123, 482 P.2d 314 (1971): "Mere menace is not enough. There must be an effort to carry the intention into execution." Id. at 126, 482 P.2d at 316. NRS 200.471 defines assault as "an unlawful attempt, coupled with a present ability, to commit a violent injury on the person of another." NRS 193.330 defines "attempt" as "[a]n act done with the intent to commit a crime, and tending but failing to accomplish it."

Is Joe Hart or someone else at News 4 related to this guy? Channel 4 seems to give this guy a lot of free air time. Notice how short this story is versus the one that ran a couple of days ago with just this guy's tirade in it? It's kind of creepy.
