Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- A Las Vegas Township's deputy constable has resigned after being arrested at a Las Vegas Strip nightclub because of accusations that she was behind a vicious scam.
The district attorney's office says that Allison Lear faked a marriage certificate to indicate that she was married to a well-known race driver that was killed in a crash in 2010.
Alexander Djordjevic was killed in a crash on June 26, 2010, during a race in Virginia City, Nev. The couple had been dating prior to the fatal crash.
After Djordjevic's death, Lear produced a marriage certificate dated just days before the crash.
However, questions soon arose regarding the validity of the marriage.
Djordjevic's family believes that Lear faked the marriage certificate to get her hands on his property, which included vehicles and other property.
Djordjevic's funeral was delayed several months while his parents tried to resolve the legal issues.
Lear was arrested at the Hakkasan nightclub at the MGM Grand late last Friday night.
Security at the nightclub contacted police because of a disturbance. Lear and another constable told officers that they were there to serve a felony arrest warrant.
Instead, Lear was arrested on an outstanding warrant for forgery, perjury and filing a false instrument.
