CARSON CITY, Nev. (KSNV & AP) — A select committee voted 6-1 in favor of expulsion for embattled Assemblyman Steven Brooks.

The committe spent several hours in a closed-door session before taking a public vote to determine Brooks' political future.

The committee than recommended that Brooks is no longer competent to serve in the Nevada Legislature.

The Select Committee discussed evidence and heard testimony on the behavior of the North Las Vegas Democrat.

The meeting had been scheduled to begin at 6 p.m. but Assembly Majority Leader William Horne said the meeting was postponed until 7:30 p.m. because Brooks' lawyer Mitchell Posin had travel delays.

Since January Brooks has been arrested twice and hospitalized for a mental evaluation. He's also been put on leave from the Legislature because of public incidents and was fired from his job as a parks and recreation analyst for the city of Las Vegas.

PAHOA, HAWAII - OCTOBER 26:  In this handout provided by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), A portion of the front of the June 27th lava flow burns through thick vegetation and a fence on October 26, 2014 in Pahoa, Hawaii. Scientists of the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory conducted ground and air observations of the lava flow from the Kilauea Volcano and determined that it was 510 meters (560 yards) upslope from Pa-hoa Village Road and the flow width was about 50 meters (55 yards) at the leading edge. Molten rock from the flow is inching its way towards homes in the town of Pahoa on Hawaii's Big Island where close to a thousand people live.  (Photo by USGS via Getty Images) (Handout, 2014 USGS)
