Sheriff Joe's Deputies vs. Reporter
Arpaio's thugs threaten to arrest a New Times reporter for looking at public records
By Ray Stern
How close did I come to getting arrested by Maricopa County sheriff's deputies today? As Maxwell Smart would say, "Missed it by that much."
The problem: I had the nerve to want to look at the same public records that sheriff's deputies were scouring at the City of Phoenix public records counter.
