Says investigators altered police reports
A former state legislator has filed a $10 million notice of claim against Phoenix police and city officials.
Bundgaard told 550 KFYI in an exclusive interview that investigators altered police reports and deliberately reported that he was the perpetrator of the incident. He says he has lost several jobs, including his Senate position...his personal and professional life turned upside down due to this situation.
Phoenix Police have declined comment on the suit.
Scott Bundgaard resigned from the Arizona Legislature in January. He stepped down before testifying to a legislative ethics committee on whether he should be disciplined for a February 2011 domestic incident involving an ex-girlfriend.
Police say Bundgaard wasn't arrested because he claimed legislative immunity, which bars arrests of lawmakers for most charges while the Legislature is in session.
In his 29-page claim Friday, Bundgaard says he didn't invoke legislative immunity. He accuses the police department of altering police reports and ``improperly and intentionally'' reporting he was the perpetrator of domestic violence.
The claim is the precursor to a lawsuit.
