LAS VEGAS – Former Nevada Assemblyman Steven Brooks was arrested near Barstow after a high-speed chase, hours after being expelled from the Legislature because he was “potentially dangerous.”

Brooks, 41, was arrested about 7 p.m. Thursday on Interstate 15 at Stoddard Wells Road, officials said. He was being held in the San Bernardino County Jail in Rancho Cucamonga on $100,000 bail, jail officials told the Los Angeles Times.

Of course he is one of the (Bros) who else would try to get away with something like this. They kicked him out of office Thursday/ Probably on his way to apply for unemployment.

Actually, this Brooks guy is a FUR REAL nut ball. He got kicked out of the state legislature by his fellow Democrats. Last month he was denied purchase of a gun. He seems to have been involved in alteractions with both his grandmother and his ex-wife that resulted in calls to the cops in February.

What I find most interesting here is that when only lightly enforced gun laws already on the book are more heavily enforced it's Democrat politicians like Brooks, or Democrat activists like Gifford's husband, who get busted!!!

This means the Democrat attack on AR15's spray painted black really is an attempt to divert our attention from the very real problem they, professional Democrats have with their own misuse of firearms!!!

Memo to anybody:

If you're going to try to outrun the cops in the desert, you need to be driving something in which you are able to make a right or left off the pavement and keep going.

Of course, Motorola and helicopters would eventually catch up, but my Raptor would have kept them all busy for an hour or two, maybe more.

He was expelled because he was potentially dangerous? Looks like the Barstow cops proved the Legislature right! QED.

Yeah, nothing makes sense like trying to make a getaway either to or from Barstow — unless it’s to or from Needles, or the getaway is done in a red tow truck. Thanks Arthurio.

Well actually it is further down in the posted article, but indirectly, mentioning Brooks had a dispute with a "fellow Democrat" legislator. Surely, if the bad guy happened to be a Pubbie, they would have had it in the first sentence and this thing would have gone viral in the MSM.

I heard this story over ABC radio earlier this week. There Brooks' party affiliation was not mentioned, so I drew the same conclusion you did, Sacajaweau. I believe that the ABC Radio News story had him as an Arizona state legislator, not Nevada, and quoted Brooks' lawyer.

Thanks for the ping!

Radio reports yesterday said Brooks was throwing rocks at cars and possibly threw a gun out of his window.

The guy is a real nut case.

He fled to the closest “end of the earth” he could get to, and still got caught.

Wow, I can’t remember the last time I heard about a state legislator being expelled, oh right there was the NY State Senator (D) who attacked his girlfriend.

He’s Black and from North Vegas, that means democrat.
