Nevada assemblyman Steven Brooks was arrested last month for threatening to shoot a female colleague. He was subsequently taken into custody for a mental exam after a domestic abuse incident in which he wielded a sword. Today, Brooks is in trouble with the law again. Mike Blasky, a reporter for the Las Vegas Review-Journal is tweeting details from the police report.

Metro says Brooks was in driveway of the home when police arrived. “I was about to call you guys,” he said.

Police say Brooks attempted to punch an officer in the face as they tried to restrain him. Punch missed by “inches,” police say.
