Support the independent voice of Phoenix and help keep the future of New Times free.

By all appearances, that is a photo of the Sheriff of Maricopa County in a bowling alley, wearing some sort of floral-print shirt, and standing next to a guy in a dog suit.

Fresh off giving testimony in the racial-profiling trial against him and his office, Arpaio was doing whatever it is that's pictured above, apparently some sort of event that benefits the MCSO Animal Safe Haven -- which qualifies him for another appearance in New Times' You Write the Caption contest.

The rules for You Write the Caption are simple: We provide the picture (above), and you provide the caption to that photo in the comments below.

On Monday, we'll announce the top-five reader captions and put them to a vote. The winner will receive a pay-your-own-way trip to the historic New Times building for a firm handshake and/or a high-five.

Do your best (or worst), New Times readers.


Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Phoenix with no paywalls.
