Joe Arpaio, 80-Year-Old Sheriff, Broke His Arm After Tripping and Falling
Eighty-year-old Sheriff Joe Arpaio tripped, fell, and broke his arm on his way to lunch today.
As you can imagine, the Sheriff's Office didn't immediately respond to New Times' request for more details.
UPDATE from MCSO Sergeant Brandon Jones, 3:09 p.m.:
"Sheriff Joe Arpaio is in excellent spirits this afternoon, hours after taking a spill which caused a break in his left shoulder. Arpaio says his doctors at St Joseph's Hospital are terrific, particularly when giving him the news that surgery will not be necessary. Arpaio joked with the emergency staff about being happy the injury was to his left arm, not his right, as he needs his right arm for his Smith and Wesson and his Smith Corona! He is expected to return to work in a few days."
