LAS VEGAS -- The arrest report for Nevada Assemblyman Steven Brooks outlines the mental health treatment he received just one day before his arrest for allegedly threatening the life of state Assembly Speaker Marilyn Kirkpatrick.
According to the North Las Vegas police report obtained by the I-Team, Brooks received treatment at the Seven Hills Behavioral Health Center the night before his Saturday arrest.
Neighbors told the I-Team Brooks and his wife moved out of their North Las Vegas home just weeks ago because of threats from a local gang.
North Las Vegas police spokeswoman Chrissie Coon said Thursday officers responded multiple times in the last months because of disputes between Brooks and a neighboring household.
According to police, officers responded 14 times to the neighboring house since last August. Seven of those responses were fights, disturbances or threats. Three of those calls were between Brooks and the neighbors.
Multiple neighbors said Brooks confronted young men at a neighboring home after his wife's car was vandalized. Neighbors, describing the house as a gang house, said the confrontations changed Brooks' behavior and demeanor.
The neighbors said Brooks believed the gang members were threatening him. The confrontation was placing a strain on the marriage, the neighbors said.
The police report identified state Sen. Kelvin Atkinson and Las Vegas Councilman Rikki Barlow as colleagues who spoke with police about Brooks' mental state.
Neither man had any comment Thursday, even after Brooks shared a photograph of him, Barlow and Gov. Brian Sandoval Wednesday night.
