An Arrest In California

Views

The strange case of former Nevada lawmaker Steven Brooks keeps getting stranger. On Thursday, hours after he was expelled from the state Assembly over his bizarre and allegedly violent behavior, Brooks was arrested on the side of a California freeway on suspicion of resisting arrest.

Now, the situation gets even more complicated. A video has surfaced apparently showing the latest arrest and the force police used to make it happen. We’ve posted the video in this AP story on the arrest.
