Fans entering Chase Field for the Major League Baseball All Star Game will get to see one of Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s chain gangs picking up trash.

The Arizona Republic reports a group of inmates from the sheriff’s holding area for suspected illegal immigrants will be on the chain gang with drunken driving offenders. All will be chained together and decked out in their striped jail uniforms.

Arpaio says it’s his way of sending a message about the perils of drunken driving.

The sheriff has sent similar messages before, placing DUI chain gangs along Glendale Avenue during the last Super Bowl.

  1. “Arpaio says it’s his way of sending a message about the perils of drunken driving.” Actually it’s his way of diverting attention from the fact that his extremist actions have cost taxpayers another $200,000 on top of the millions already paid out for his mistakes. Sheriff Joke needs to be impeached, we simply can’t afford his lack of professionalism any longer.
