Arizona Attorney General Tom Horne has been cited in a hit-and-run accident almost seven months ago near downtown Phoenix.

Phoenix police say the department's Vehicular Crimes Unit met with Horne and his attorney Wednesday.

They say Horne was cited for one count of leaving the scene of a collision/unattended vehicle, a class three misdemeanor.

Police say the case now will be forwarded to the city's municipal court for disposition.

Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery announced on Oct. 1 that an FBI investigation into campaign finance matters involving Horne unearthed information about a hit-and-run accident.

Horne says he was "backing out of a parking space" on March 27 and he "backed into someone else's bumper."

He says he didn't see any damage and didn't leave his name and number.
