Mistrial declared in 'Thunder' trial

Posted: Updated:
LAS VEGAS -- A judge has declared a mistrial in the case of a man accused of trying to rob the dancers of the Las Vegas Strip show “Thunder from Down Under” and firing off a gun backstage in the process.

Joey Kadmiri, 24 of Las Vegas, is charged with felony burglary, robbery, battery and weapons charges for the March incident at the Luxor Hotel and Casino. His trial started Tuesday.

The members of the all-male revue stopped Kadmiri from taking anything. Prosecutors say one cast member suffered gunpowder burns on side of his face and still has eye and ear damage, while another received lesser injuries during the effort to subdue him.

Defense attorney Joshua Tomsheck has said that Kadmiri had drug and mental health issues.

There is no word on why the judge decided to declare a mistrial.
