Nevada Lawmaker Held for Psychiatric Evaluation

Nevada Assemblyman Steven Brooks (D) has been detained by police for a psychiatric evaluation after a disturbance at his grandmother's house, the Las Vegas Sun reports.

Police said Brooks "was exhibiting what was described as bizarre behavior" and seized a sword from him.

The detainment is the latest development since last weekend, when Brooks was arrested on charges of threatening the life of Assembly Speaker Marilyn Kirkpatrick.
