Tom Horne's Fender-Bender: Photos for the Curious

As I mentioned in a blog item Monday, Arizona Attorney General Tom Horne's initial court date for the March fender-bender that took place at his presumed mistress Camen Chenal's abode is this Friday morning.

The Phoenix Police Department just released its report on the incident, along with these pics of the damage to the two cars involved. So I'm posting them for the curious.

Horne looks guilty as heck, and even admitted to the hit-and-run to one of his employees, public information officer Amy Rezzonico, according to the investigative file.

Rezzonico told investigators that the AG didn't believe he had damaged the other vehicle.

That may be true. Kevin Montano, the owner of the white Range Rover Horne hit, didn't even know there had been damage to his car until FBI agents showed up at his door, according to the report.

Read interviews associated with the case.

A preliminary estimate for repairs to Montano's vehicle in the amount of $1,070.95 is included with the documents released Tuesday.

There was also damage to the car of Linnea Heap, the AG employee who lent Carmen Chenal her Volkswagen Passat on that fateful day. Chenal tells the Phoenix cops that the damage to Heap's car was "no more than $150," though it looks more extensive than the Range Rover's damage in the photos.

Read the Phoenix Police Department report on the hit and run.

Range Rover's are notoriously expensive to repair.

Montano told the cops that the black mark in the picture was something caused by his son while driving.
