Vegas Prosecutor Facing Cocaine Possession Charge
LAS VEGAS (AP) — A Clark County prosecutor
who has handled some of Las Vegas‘ most high-profile drug cases has been arrested after police say he bought crack cocaine from a street dealer.
The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports that David Schubert was arrested a little before 5 p.m. Saturday in a neighborhood east of the Las Vegas Strip.
Records show the 47-year-old was free Monday from the Clark County jail pending a court appearance.
District Attorney David Roger tells the Review-Journal that Schubert has been suspended, and investigators are looking into whether he might have compromised cases he handled.
Schubert is the chief deputy district attorney who prosecuted the Bruno Mars and Paris Hilton celebrity drug cases. He was also the local liaison to a federal drug task force.
