ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV)  --  The mayor of Sunset Hills, Missouri, Mark Furrer, is being investigated by police after a cyclist said Furrer hit the man while riding a bike.

This allegedly happened Tuesday on Old Gravois Road, near Kennerly Road in South County. 

"He is screaming at me to 'get off my road!' He must have yelled it four or five times," Randy Murdick said.

Murdick said he then yelled back at mayor as he forced him off the road. Murdick said Furrer then took off and stopped at a nearby turnoff.

"He literally just swerved," Murdick said.

Furrer said he yelled at Murdick but only because he claims Murdick ran a stop sign. Furrer told News 4 he did not bump Murdick or force him off the road.

"I should not have yelled at him," Furrer said. "I did not run him off the road."

Police said a report on the incident may be finished by Friday.
