PHOENIX (AP) - Investigators with the Arizona Department of Public Safety say they’ll leave it to the Maricopa County Attorney to decide if schools chief Diane Douglas was assaulted by the president of the Board of Education during a meeting.

Reports released Monday show investigators determined board President Greg Miller touched Superintendent of Public Instruction Diane Douglas’ arm during a dispute over who had the right to speak at an August 24 meeting. Douglas suffered no injuries.

Miller told detectives he may have inadvertently touched the superintendent’s arm while moving her microphone. That’s consistent with what he said after Douglas filed an assault report about the incident.

Douglas has been at odds with the board since February and unsuccessfully sued to exert control over board staff.
