PHOENIX (AP) -- Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio is resting at home after breaking his left shoulder in a fall last week.

The sheriff's office said Tuesday that Arpaio is "working hard at keeping his left arm still so it can heal properly."

Arpaio's wife Ava says he's still in pain and won't be entertaining any interview requests this week.

The 80-year-old sheriff tripped and fell on a sidewalk on his way to lunch last Thursday in downtown Phoenix.

Arpaio's staff members took him to the emergency room at St. Joseph's Hospital and Medical Center, but he didn't need surgery.

He was hospitalized overnight as a precaution and went home on Saturday.

Arpaio was elected last November to his sixth consecutive term as sheriff in Arizona's most populous county.
