Arpaio probe continues

Posted: Updated:

More testimony Tuesday in the probe into abuse of power allegations against Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

County Manager David Smith and his top deputy today told a federal grand jury he welcomed the opportunity to share how county employees had been targeted by Sheriff Arpaio and County Attorney Andrew Thomas. County officials accuse Arpaio's deputies of trying to intimidate county workers by showing up at their homes at night to ask them about budget items during a clash over $17-million  in sheriff's funding.
