LAS VEGAS (AP) -- Troubled Assemblyman Steven Brooks was arrested early Sunday in Las Vegas on suspicion of physically attacking a family member, then grabbing for an officer's weapon.

The arrest came only days after he embarked on a three-week leave amid formation of a select legislative committee to investigate him for a string of bizarre events that began with his arrest for allegedly threatening Assembly Speaker Marilyn Kirkpatrick.

Police say the North Las Vegas Democrat was "agitated'" and refused to obey officers' orders after they responded to a report of a domestic dispute and arrived to find him outside a home.

The 40-year-old Brooks is accused of grabbing for an officer's weapon as they tried to arrest him.

He was booked into jail on misdemeanor charges of domestic battery and obstructing an officer.
