Las Vegas prosecutor facing drug charge quits


LAS VEGAS (AP) -- A Las Vegas prosecutor who handled recent drug cases involving Paris Hilton and pop singer Bruno Mars has resigned following his arrest in a crack cocaine case.

Clark County District Attorney David Roger tells The Associated Press he accepted David Schubert's resignation Friday.

A telephone call to Schubert went unanswered. His lawyer, William Terry, didn't immediately respond to a message.

The 47-year-old Schubert was arrested March 19 after Las Vegas police reported watching him in a white BMW sedan buy $40 worth of rock cocaine in a neighborhood east of the Las Vegas Strip.

Schubert was a 10-year veteran prosecutor and liaison for the last two years to a federal drug task force.

He's free pending a May 19 court date on felony conspiracy and cocaine possession charges.
