Yes, tweeps, it is believed a sword was involved with Brooks' "bizarre behavior" today. Is anyone surprised? Capacity for surprise gone?—

Democratic Nevada Assemblyman Steven Brooks, who was arrested last weekend for allegedly threatening to shoot Speaker-elect Marilyn Kirkpatrick, has been taken by police for a psychological examination under Legal 2000, which allows forced hospitalization for up to 72 hours where mental illness is suspected.
The Las Vegas Sun’s Anjeanette Damon confirms that a sword was involved in the family disturbance which led to Brooks’ hospitalization.
