PHOENIX (AP) – The head of Phoenix’s largest police union says City Councilman Michael Johnson admitted to making contact with a police officer in an altercation that ended with Johnson being temporarily detained and handcuffed.

The president of the Phoenix Law Enforcement Association, Mark Spencer, says he had spoken separately with Johnson and Officer Brian Authement. Spencer says it’s his understanding that Authement’s hand or arm was smacked aside or down by Johnson in the March 19 incident in south Phoenix.
