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.

    I’m surprised this wasn’t mentioned in the lamestream press. hmmm…oh wait! There’s a “D” in front of his name…of course

      That’s one of those “inconvenient” little truths we “unwashed masses” need know nothing about.

    Was it an assault sword with more than 7 swings loaded in his arm?

      The most important question is does the sword have an illegal pistol grip modification on the blade. You know, that would actually make it ineffective but for some reason simultaneously more dangerous legally.

      Thanks for the info Randi.
      He and Jesse Jackson Jr. are definately kindred spirits.

    Brooks may be released, eventually. He is a Democrat, after all. But his ego and paranoia will force him to do something dangerous and stupid. … Again.

    Looks like whatever Jesse Jackson Jr. has is contagious.
