 A Harris County grand jury has issued four indictments in connection with a 2020 incident in which Mark Aguirre, a former police captain, ran a man off the road with his vehicle and then pointed a gun at his head in an effort to prove a bogus voter fraud conspiracy.


Grand jurors Wednesday indicted Aguirre, who has also previously been indicted in connection with the incident, and co-defendant Steven Hotze each for Unlawful Restraint, a third-degree felony and Aggravated Assault, a second-degree felony.


Hotze, 71, a Houston resident, was indicted for actions he took in furtherance of the scheme. Aguirre, 64, left the Houston Police Department years before the incident and was working as a private investigator at the time.


Each defendant appeared in state district court today.

An indictment means that a grand jury, after a review of the evidence, has determined that there is probable cause for a criminal charge. Please remember that a person is presumed innocent until proven guilty. The Harris County District Clerk’s Office is the keeper of court records and is the point of contact for requesting copies of the indictments or other documents. We will not be participating in any news media interviews at this time.
