PHOENIX (AP) — Arizona Attorney General Tom Horne has pleaded not guilty to a hit-and-run charge stemming from a minor accident.

Horne was scheduled to be arraigned Friday in Phoenix Municipal Court but his lawyer entered Horne's plea on his behalf several days earlier.

Horne is accused of one count of leaving the scene of a collision/unattended vehicle, a class three misdemeanor.

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

Horne was cited following a Phoenix police investigation.

Horne says he didn't leave his name and address because he didn't see any damage after he backed into a vehicle in a parking garage.

FBI agents who had Horne under surveillance witnessed the accident.

Should Arizona lower the age when teens can obtain driving permits?

Arizona House Bill 2080 would allow teenagers as young as 15 to obtain a driving permit, only letting them drive with a licensed operator who is 21 years or older. The current driving permit age limit is 15 years, 6 months. Is this change a good idea?
