Martin Brannan to be charged with assaulting Mayor Lizarraga?

A couple of quick phone calls have confirmed that a Sheriff's investigation into the May 22nd assault on outgoing Mayor Jose Lizarraga by Quartzsite Town Attorney Martin Brannan has resulted in a criminal charge.

La Paz County Prosecutor Sam Vederman told Parkerliveonline,
“As Mr. Brannan was my former supervisor when he was the La Paz County Attorney, and because I defeated him in the 2008 Republican Primary election for La Paz County Attorney, I decided it would be proper to declare a conflict and request that another prosecuting agency review and potentially prosecute the case.”

Via email, Vederman told the Desert Freedom Press  "The City of Phoenix Prosecutor's Office accepted the case. I do not believe there is a warrant for his arrest."

The Phoenix Prosecutor's office has confirmed that the case is in their system.
