SUNSET HILLS, Mo. (AP) - Aldermen in the St. Louis suburb of Sunset Hills have approved a process that could lead to the removal of the town’s mayor, who is charged with two felonies.

The aldermen voted 6-2 Tuesday on an ordinance outlining an impeachment process that calls for a public hearing. Sixty-year-old Mayor Mark Furrer was charged Oct. 1 with second-degree assault and first-degree property damage. Authorities say he drove his car into a bicyclist in July.

The cyclist has told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that Furrer yelled at him to get off the road and intentionally hit him.

Furrer has denied wrongdoing and says he won’t step down. He voted against the ordinance on Tuesday.
