State Lawmaker Arrested For Threatening To Shoot Colleague

And you thought Congress was dysfunctional.

A Nevada lawmaker was arrested on Saturday night for threatening to shoot a colleague, KNTV reported.

According to the Las Vegas Sun, State Assemblyman Steven Brooks was arrested with a loaded gun. He had threatened to shoot Speaker-elect Marilyn Kirkpatrick. He was apparently unhappy with his committee assignments.

He spent the night in custody, the Las Vegas-Review Journal reported.

Brooks is a Democratic assemblyman who represents North Las Vegas. He was first elected in 2010.

As the Sun reported, the Nevada State Assembly recently experienced a shakeup after its previous speaker had lost his bid for reelection. The Democratic caucus was split between Kirkpatrick and another official. Brooks had reportedly been seeking the spot of chairman of the Assembly's Ways and Means Committee, but the position went to another lawmaker.

The Nevada State Assembly is set to reconvene on February 4th.
