Suspect indicted in assault on Arizona lawmaker

A Casa Grande man has been indicted on kidnapping and aggravated assault charges in the Christmas Day attack on an Arizona legislator.

Pinal County prosecutors say 34-year-old Hilyard Bardney Scott also is charged with robbery, burglary and theft. He will be arraigned Friday. If convicted, prosecutors say Scott could face more than 40 years in prison.

Authorities said state Rep. Frank Pratt was beaten, tied up and robbed Dec. 25 by a man who had broken into his Casa Grande swimming pool business.

The Arizona Republic says police found Pratt’s stolen SUV days later in Phoenix.

Scott has been in a Pinal County jail since his Jan. 5 arrest and is being held on a $100,000 bond.
