The brother of Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock has been arrested in North Hollywood for possession of hundreds of images of child porn, according to authorities.

58-year-old Bruce Douglas Paddock was taken into custody at a nursing facility in the 5300 block of Laurel Canyon Boulevard this morning.

In the TV coverage from local news outlets, Paddock could be seen in a wheelchair being loaded into the back of a van by LAPD officers.

Paddock has 20 criminal charges against him, all related to possession of child pornography or the sexual exploitation of children.

He is accused of having more than 600 pornographic images of children, including 10 or more images showing a child younger than 12.

LAPD began to investigate Paddock after evidence was found in a Sun Valley business that he had been squatting in. The evidence was found after he was evicted.

Paddock was homeless at the time of the arrest and could't be found, until officers tracked him to the facility in North Hollywood.

LAPD spokesman Josh Rubenstein said that Bruce Paddock's arrest was totally independent from the deadly Las Vegas shooting:

"There's no connection."

The nursing home where Paddock was arrested offers long-term and short-term medical care. A spokesperson for the facility declined to comment on Paddock citing patient privacy laws.

Who cares about this creep's privacy! What a disgusting group of brothers.
