Maricopa County Attorney won't prosecute man accused of punching Glendale firefighters

GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) - The Maricopa County Attorney's Office won't prosecute a man accused of punching two Glendale firefighters during a medical call at a home nearly two months ago.

Glendale police arrested 30-year-old James Murillo on suspicion of aggravated assault following the incident.

The county attorney notified police in a memo sent Dec. 10 that there was no reasonable likelihood of a conviction.

Glendale Fire Department officials placed all four men on administrative leave with full pay and benefits.

All four are back at work, but two have reassigned to different divisions pending the outcome of an ongoing administrative investigation.

The crew responded to Murillo's home on Oct. 26 after his parents called and reported he had had a seizure.
