LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

A Clark County Family Court judge ordered a temporary protective order against embattled lawmaker Steven Brooks dissolved on Tuesday.

The move came after Brooks' wife, Ada, did not appear for a hearing to extend the order, according to Brooks' attorney Mitchell Posin.

The hearing stemmed from an incident in which Brooks was arrested for a physical confrontation with his wife at her home on Feb. 10.

According to an arrest report, Brooks had pulled on his wife's hair and hit her head on a counter a couple of times. In this incident, Brooks, according to the report, was also combative with officers, at one time claiming to have grabbed a gun from a policeman.

Brooks was not present in court, Posin said.

The Tuesday court date also follows the latest incident plaguing Brooks' public persona.

The Grand Sierra Resort in Reno ordered the lawmaker to leave the property on Friday after he, as a spokesperson described, caused a scene at the Johnny Rockets eatery there.

The resort said it was not commenting further on the issue. In a comment to the Las Vegas Sun on the incident, Brooks believes he was targeted by management due to recent negative press.

Brooks has been banned from the Nevada Legislative building in Carson City as an Assembly committee investigates whether he is fit to serve in the chamber.

The committee stems from his January arrest in connection to alleged threats he made to Assembly Speaker Marilyn Kirkpatrick.
