The Las Vegas chief deputy district attorney, who prosecuted celebs Paris Hilton and Bruno Mars in their drug cases last year, was arrested during the weekend in connection with possession of cocaine, RadarOnline.com has learned.
David Charles Schubert, 47, is also a member of a federal drug task force. According to the Las Vegas Review-Journal, officers took him into custody after witnessing him purchase crack cocaine from a dealer on the street.
"It's disheartening to know the individual who I assigned to prosecute high-level drug cases is allegedly using rock cocaine," District Attorney David Roger told the paper, noting that Schubert is suspended, and likely to be fired. "His future is bleak with the district attorney's office.”
Both Hilton and Mars agreed to plea deals in connection with their arrests.
