KNWA -- Earlier this month, we told you about an investigation into accusations Rogers City Attorney Ben Lipscomb posed as an undercover officer to gain VIP access to a Miranda Lambert concert.

Now the city is responding to our continuing investigation into other actions made by Lipscomb, an elected city official.

On Friday, Mayor Hines will hold a press conference at 10:30 to discuss KNWA's investigation and the contents of documents involving Lipscomb, including two police reports, turned over to KNWA/Fox 24 Friday morning.

According to a statement from the city, "Mayor Hines believes that the contents of the case files will create questions from the press which qualify as public interest and wants to make himself available in order to address the issues."

We'll have more from that press conference and this investigation throughout the day right here and on KNWA News and Fox News Edge.
