A few years ago, Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin were arrested by one of the county’s sheriffs deputy for revealing one of the valuable secrets to the public concerning an investigation about a long time feud of one the county Sheriff called Joe Arpaio with the New Times.
They told a story to the readers how the Sheriff had gone against the United States Constitution and had forced to subpoena all the documents that were published in the new times’ website and also those that had been printed regarding Sherriff Joe Arpaio.
Sheriff Joe Arpaio had also asked for the identification of all the people who had read the new times publications because the county Sherriff wanted to cover up for his injustices. This made them arrested from their homes in the middle of the night and jailed during the same day.
The public had a view that the two had an unjust arrest and following the court hearings, the two were released and given a settlement bill by their arrestors.
