CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) - Nevada Assemblyman John Moore has filed a complaint against fellow Republican Assembly Majority Leader Paul Anderson over a physical altercation.

Moore filed the complaint with legislative police on Tuesday after he said an altercation between him and Anderson during a committee recess earlier in the morning. The Las Vegas Republican said Anderson called him into a meeting in a stairwell and refused to let him leave.

Assemblyman Glenn Trowbridge and Moore voted against Republican-backed SB 119, which extends school construction bond rollovers and cut prevailing wage requirements for school projects. Trowbridge and Moore changed their votes after a recess and sent the bill to the Assembly without a recommendation.

Anderson refused to comment on the incident. Legislative Council Bureau director Rick Combs said legislative police are looking into Moore’s claims.
