4.) Tim Abrahamson
Tim Abrahamson was considered a model employee for the MCSO, and had worked on Arpaio's ultimately discredited anti-corruption task force during his seven years on the force. The model deputy drove to North Dakota in 2012 to assault the man he believed was his wife's lover. He was sentenced in 2013 to 180 days in jail. Steve Carpenter, the deputy who drove with Abrahamson from the Valley, resigned after receiving immunity for his own actions in return for testifying about his colleague.
3.) David Hendershott
We decided not to put Dave Hendershott's former boss, Sheriff Arpaio, on this list -- he's more politician than cop. But Hendershott, Arpaio's longtime right-hand man and ex-chief deputy, sure deserves to be rated among the state's worst cops. After an internal investigation concluded he'd misused his power for financial gain and had run a corrupt anti-corruption task force, (the same one that Abrahamson did some work on), Arpaio fired him and another top aide in 2011.
