In Las Vegas, LVMPD regularly detains motorcyclists for minor traffic violations, and then keeps them for an extended period of time for “intelligence gathering.” On 11/14/2013, about a hundred motorcyclists were gathered in Las Vegas for a Southern Nevada Confederation of Clubs meeting. At this meeting, Attorney Stephen Stubbs was going to make a presentation on Constitutional Rights. However, Attorney Stubbs was pulled out of the building by other motorcyclists to help a member of the Bikers for Christ Motorcycle Ministry that was being detained by LVMPD.

Attorney Stubbs came out of the building; the detained member of Bikers for Christ immediately pointed at Stubbs and said, “That’s my lawyer.” Attorney Stubbs approached two LVMPD officers and one LVMPD Sergeant. Attorney Stubbs asked the LVMPD sergeant if the man was being detained and the sergeant said, “Yes, for a traffic violation,” then explained that they wanted to “question” him.

At that time, the video started.

Stephen-Stubbs-CopBlockAttorney Stubbs told the LVMPD sergeant that he would be attending the questioning and the LVMPD sergeant agreed and approved. Stubbs and the sergeant had a brief discussion on the 5th Amendment Right to Counsel. A few minutes into the questioning, the LVMPD Gang Task Force showed up and announced that it was now their investigation. LVMPD Gang Task Force Lieutenant Yatomi (P#6402) (this short little girl has MAJOR power trip issues) ordered Attorney Stubbs to leave so that the LVMPD could question Stubbs’s client out of his presence. Attorney Stubbs refused to leave because of his client’s 5th Amendment Right to Counsel. LVMPD Gang Task Force Lieutenant Yatomi then arrested Attorney Stubbs for Obstructing a Public Officer. Attorney Stubbs was booked in the Clark County Detention Center and was released early the next morning. Attorney Stubbs has his first court date in March 2014 to face the charges.
