Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- A court appearance by Assemblyman Steven Brooks, accused of making threats against a colleague, has been delayed.
Brooks was scheduled to make his initial appearance today at the North Las Vegas Justice Court. However, the Clark County District Attorney's office has yet to file any charges.
Brooks was arrested on Jan. 19 after it was reported that he told another lawmaker that he might harm incoming Assembly Speaker Marilyn Kirkpatrick.
After police tracked Brooks down, they found a handgun inside of Brooks' rental car along with a box of ammunition.
He spent the night in jail before being released on a $100,000 bail.
Last Friday, he was taken to a local hospital for 72-hour evaluation after someone called and told police that he was fighting with family members and acting "bizarre."
The call was placed from his grandmother's house.
A neighbor of Brooks' also says that the assemblyman regularly made threats against her family as well.
Brooks was arrested for allegedly intimidating a public officer.
