Criminal investigation into Phoenix Mayor

Earlier this week, a woman alleged Phoenix Mayor Chris Luz hit her with his car during protests in Medford. There is now a criminal investigation into the allegations against him, according to Medford police.

On Monday at a Phoenix city council meeting, Mikala Johnston confronted Mayor Luz. She claims he drove his car through protestors in Medford and hit her, when they were calling for justice for George Floyd. The alleged incident took place June 1st.
