Clark Countys chief deputy district attorney, who prosecuted high-profile celebrity drug cases involving Paris Hilton and Bruno Mars, was also making frequent trips to his personal drug supplier on the citys east side, according to Las Vegas Metro police.
An arrest report for 47-year-old David Schubert details the events leading up to his arrest on Saturday afternoon in the neighborhood of Lisbon Avenue and Cambridge Street.
The area, according to police, is a hotbed for narcotics and violent crime.
An officer said he saw Schuberts white four-door BMW stop in front of an apartment complex on Lisbon, where he picked up a man and drove him around to another part of the neighborhood.
The man, who was later identified as Raymond Streeter, got out of the BMW for a few minutes and then got back inside, according to police.
Schubert was then pulled over after an officer said he made a turn without using his signal. When the officer flashed his lights, police said Streeter ran from the BMW. He was taken into custody nearby.
While officers searched Schuberts car, Streeter agreed to an interview.
According to the arrest report, Streeter said he knew Schubert by the alias Joe and had been acting as a middleman in $40 drug deals for cocaine and had helped him buy drugs three to four times per week for at least six months.
Police said they found evidence of rock cocaine on the passenger floorboard of Schuberts BMW. He was booked into the Clark County Detention Center, but was out of jail by Sunday night.
Officers also confiscated a semi-automatic handgun, four magazines with a total of 47 bullets and two boxes containing 50 bullets each.

Schubert joined the district attorneys office in 2002. He also served as the prosecutor for a federal drug task force.
His recent cases involving Hilton and Mars ended in plea agreements for both celebrities.
In an interview with FOX5, District Attorney David Roger said his office will ask the Attorney General's Office to prosecute the case in order to avoid any conflict of interest.
