PHOENIX (AP) - A former state legislator has filed a $10 million notice of claim against Phoenix police and city officials.
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. Calls to Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton and city police officials weren't immediately returned.
