BULLET PROOF MOGUL GETS SHOT DOWN(NOT LITERALLY)
DAVID H. Brooks, the Long Island bullet-proof vest tycoon who spent $10 million for his daughter's bat mitzvah bash on Saturday, is being investigated by the Securities and Exchange Commission.
Brooks gained notoriety when it was revealed he had hired Aerosmith, the Eagles, Stevie Nicks, 50 Cent, Ciara, Kenny G and Tom Petty to play at a party for his 13-year-old daughter, Elizabeth, on both floors of the Rainbow Room.
Brooks' company, DHB, a defense contractor that makes bullet-proof vests for the U.S. military, has been the subject of several class-action suits stemming from a government recall of its body armor. In May, the Marine Corps recalled 5,277 combat vests made by a DHB subsidiary issued to troops in Iraq and Afghanistan because of concerns that they failed a test to determine whether they could stop a bullet, reports Foxnews.com's Roger Friedman.
