Meeting planned to determine Steven Brooks' future

CREATED Mar. 26, 2013

Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- A member of the Nevada legislature has never been kicked out of office before, but that's what could happen to Steven Brooks.

That depends on what a committee recommends to the legislature. They'll listen to comments from the public and consider findings from an independent council on Brooks' recent arrests and other erratic behavior.

It all started back in January when police arrested Brooks for allegedly threatening Assembly Speaker Marilyn Kirkpatrick.

He was also arrested in February for allegedly attacking his wife and trying to take an officer's gun. 

Members of the Assembly say Brooks has been in touch with them.

"He sent out a mass instant message to caucus members," Assembly Majority Leader William Horne said. "Basically he did not want this process going forward." 

If the committee recommends Brooks' removal, the legislature could act as quickly as Wednesday.
