Authorities have not disclosed what the mayor was doing when he was beaten, but he did confirm that he was attending a Pride event that day, while several Juneteenth parties were also hosted by Fourth Street Live over the weekend.

‘Great energy at the Pride Parade! Louisville stands with our LGBTQ+ residents today and every day. You make our city better and stronger and we promise to continue the work…” Fischer wrote on Twitter, without referring to the blow.

Fischer has served three terms in office and can no longer serve due to term restrictions.
