Arizona AG pleads not guilty to hit & run charge

Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX (AP) - Arizona Attorney General Tom Horne has pleaded not guilty to a hit & run charge stemming from a minor accident.

Horne was scheduled to be arraigned Friday in Phoenix Municipal Court but his lawyer entered Horne's plea on his behalf several days earlier.

Horne is accused of 1 count of leaving the scene of a collision/unattended vehicle, a class three misdemeanor.

Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery announced Oct. 1 that an FBI investigation into campaign finance matters involving Horne unearthed information about a hit & run accident.

Horne was cited following a Phoenix police investigation.

Horne says he didn't leave his name and address because he didn't see any damage after he backed into a vehicle in a parking garage.

FBI agents who had Horne under surveillance witnessed the accident.
