Assemblyman’s spats with neighbors brought police attention

North Las Vegas police said Friday they are investigating Assemblyman Steven Brooks for multiple incidents in which police were called to his neighborhood, most stemming from spats Brooks had with neighbors.

Brooks was arrested Saturday on a felony charge of intimidating a public officer by threat of physical violence.

Sgt. Tim Bedwell said all the incidents, about 10 in the past year, will be reviewed as part of the larger investigation into the threats against Assembly Speaker Marilyn Kirkpatrick.

None of the incidents with neighbors resulted in arrests or citations.

“We’re reexamining every contact with him,” Bedwell said. “Most of these have to do with neighbor incidents.”

Bedwell said prior to police learning about threats against Kirkpatrick Saturday, Brooks called police and told them his bank card was taken by a man who took out more money than authorized. The man also took some of Brooks’ property, he claimed.

Bedwell said that police report won’t be released because of an ongoing investigation.

Brooks also told investigators Saturday he was beat up by a female neighbor. He declined to prosecute and no report was made, but Brooks’ claim is being investigated, Bedwell said.

Later Saturday, police learned of alleged threats Brooks made against Kirkpatrick. His car was stopped in northeast Las Vegas and police found a gun and ammunition in the vehicle.
