(Phoenix, Arizona) – A Maricopa County Grand Jury has indicted former Mesa Police Officer Kaylon Hall for two counts of Endangerment, a Class 6 Dangerous Felony, for an incident that occurred on July 2, 2022.*
During a traffic stop, Hall fired two shots from his service weapon at a vehicle he had pulled over as the vehicle drove away.
“As County Attorney, I will hold those who break the law accountable. An individual’s profession does not impact decision making in my office when deciding if criminal charges are warranted. The community’s trust in our criminal justice system can only be achieved if those sworn to serve and protect are held accountable when criminal acts occur,” said County Attorney Rachel Mitchell.
* A charge in a crime is merely an accusation and the defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.
