Attorney Stephen Stubbs of Boulder City is due in court May 5 to face a single charge of obstructing a police officer.
He also will stand trial in Boulder City Municipal Court on May 1 on one charge of battery.
The obstruction charge stems from his Nov. 14 arrest involving motorcyclist Kevin Desmarias. According to the arrest report, Desmarias was pulled over by Metropolitan Police in Las Vegas in the parking lot of the Leathernecks Club near Spring Mountain Road and Arville Street for failing to use his turn signal.
A person who saw Desmarias get pulled over told others to “call the lawyer,” and Stubbs came out shortly after, the report said. Stubbs then told police he was representing Desmarias, but police said Desmarias never indicated that Stubbs was his attorney, nor did he request to have him at the scene.
Officers told Stubbs he needed to move aside while they conducted their investigation, but Stubbs did not comply, police said. Stubbs, who was armed, then began arguing with police. After becoming increasingly agitated and failing to cooperate with police several times, Stubbs was booked on one count of obstructing a public officer.
Stubbs, who has a history of interfering with patrol stops, threatened to file a lawsuit against Metro, police said.
