Motion filed against city in case involving safety exercise arrest

Attorney Stephen Stubbs, acting on behalf of local resident John Hunt, filed a motion Tuesday to compel discovery in Boulder City Municipal Court as his previous request for exculpatory evidence has not been answered.

In the motion, Stubbs said that in a pretrial conference on Aug. 22 Assistant City Attorney Gary Booker refused to give him the information he requested, which included all dash cam videos from every ticket written during the June 8, 2016, public safety exercise during which Hunt was arrested; the dash cam video from two Nevada Highway Patrol vehicles in view of the incident; the identities of the troopers inside those vehicles; and the dash cam video from 7:30 to 8:12 a.m. from Boulder City Police Department Unit 277.

Stubbs said Booker “flatly refused” to give him any more information and would not look into any more information that NHP might have.

In this new motion, Stubbs is requesting the identity of the trooper who pulled over a vehicle during Hunt’s protest, a copy of the citation from that stop, and all radio traffic regarding the public safety exercise.

Hunt was arrested by Boulder City Police Sgt. John Glenn on several charges, including obstructing traffic and resisting arrest after he repeatedly walked back and forth in a marked crosswalk protesting a police-sanctioned pedestrian enforcement detail.

A hearing for the motion to compel discovery is set for Tuesday, Oct. 31, at 3:30 p.m.
