Costa Mesa police told the Orange County Register Monday that they are investigating an incident involving West Covina Mayor Mike Spence.
Officers responded earlier this month to a medical aid call at a hotel. Spence reportedly was found unconscious along with “controlled substance items” at the scene, a Holiday Inn Express on Newport Boulevard. He was in Orange County to attend the state Republican Convention.
Spence denied any wrongdoing in connection with the incident. In 2016, Spence admitted he has substance abuse problem after he was cited for driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
