Embattled lawmaker Steven Brooks arrived in Carson City and received an official letter banishing him from the Nevada Legislative building.
Brooks' attorney Mitchell Posin confirmed Tuesday his client was headed to northern Nevada but had no knowledge why he was traveling to the state capital.
In a letter authored by Assembly Majority Leader William Horne, Brooks was ordered to stay away from the Nevada chamber while a committee looks into his fitness as an assemblyman.
Brooks was also placed on paid administrative leave.
News of Brooks' travel comes two days removed from his arrest on domestic violence and obstruction of justice charges. Brooks was accused of battery on his wife at her home and a scuffle involving Las Vegas Metro police.
Brooks also has existing charges connected to threats made toward Assembly Speaker Marilyn Kirkpatrick.
Brooks announced a 3-week leave from the Assembly last Thursday for, what he calls, a medical procedure.
