Records show an Arizona lawmaker already under fire for claiming legislative immunity during a traffic stop for speeding has had similar run-ins with state police, and only got a warning each time.

According to Department of Public Safety documents obtained by The Arizona Republic Tuesday, Rep. Paul Mosley was pulled over by troopers six times since February 2017.
    
Five were for speeding. One was for failing to heed a stop sign.
    
Records indicate the Republican legislator never got a ticket.
    
DPS spokesman Bart Graves says troopers were acting within state statute.
    
Mosley did not immediately respond Wednesday to messages seeking comment.
    
Body camera footage published last week shows Mosley telling a La Paz County Sheriff's deputy during a March 27 stop he drives as much as 140 mph (225 kph).
