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

‘Awesome energy at the Pride Parade! Louisville stands with our LGBTQ+ residents today & every day. You make our city better & stronger & we pledge to continue the work…’ Fischer wrote on Twitter, making no reference to the punch.

Fischer has served three terms in office and will not be able to run again due to term limits.
