Phoenix prosecutor says Bundgaard case still open

Senate Republicans have chosen to keep Sen. Scott Bundgaard as majority leader, despite calls from some for him to step down. Bundgaard, who was involved in a domestic violence incident on Feb., 25 with then-girlfriend Aubrey Ballard, has said his name will be cleared as the "issue works through the process."

City Prosecutor Aaron Carreon-Ainsa says his office has asked police for more information about the Feb. 25 alleged domestic violence incident involving Bundgaard and his now-former girlfriend.

The two argued while returning home after a charity dance. Police found them with Bundgaard’s parked car along State Route 51 in north Phoenix. Each had bruises and cuts.

Police on March 24 submitted reports to city prosecutors along with a recommendation that Bundgaard be charged with assault.

The Peoria Republican has denied wrongdoing.

Senate Republicans removed Bundgaard as majority leader but he remains a senator.
