Casino MonteLago Re-Opens Tonight

LAKE LAS VEGAS, Nev. -- Lake Las Vegas has a new star. The once-booming resort community 30 miles from las vegas fell on hard times when the recession hit. But the newly-renovated Casino MonteLago re-opens Thursday night.

Locals and business owners are betting heavy the casino will bring the area back.

Casino MonteLago is the only casino at the lake. It closed last spring and officially re-opens under new management with all new games at p.m. One employee who's back for a second go-round at the casino thinks this is the boost Lake Las Vegas needs.

A Henderson man faces multiple felony charges after allegedly offering a bribe to a DMV employee to reinstate his driver license and change the date of birth listed on it.

Investigators say William Michael Daugherty also tried to help three underage girls alter their licenses for the purpose of purchasing alcohol.

On May 12, Daugherty, 19, passed a handwritten note to a DMV technician at the office on Sahara Ave. that said, “you wanna make money call me,” and listed a telephone number.

Notified by the employee, the DMV’s Compliance Enforcement Division pursued the case and requested assistance from the Department of Public Safety – Investigation Division to arrange for an undercover officer to contact the suspect. An officer from the DPS – Investigation Division posed as a DMV supervisor and negotiated with Daugherty through several phone calls and a meeting near the suspect’s home.

Henderson Faces Ethical Dilemma After Arrest of City Attorney

Quillin has a date in court next month in Henderson Municipal Court. After that, where her case moves forward is up in the air. The Attorney General's Office says situations like this don't happen too often, but when they do it creates a big dilemma.

According to the arrest report, on Monday, the 51-year-old lost control of her Lexus, ran off the road near Paseo Verde and Carnegie, hit a fire hydrant, a boulder and two trees. Quillin also sideswiped another car.

Police say Quillin got out of her car and started walking away. She allegedly smelled of alcohol and had slurred speech.
