Sheriff Arpaio Apparent Victim of Indentity Theft

Sheriff Joe Arpaio's reputation for being hard on criminals is well known, but, in at least a small way, the tables have turned.

Sheriff's officials said Monday Arpaio had his credit card information stolen to the tune of $291.

Arpaio said someone used his Discover card last week to buy groceries in Chicago at a store called Jewel. He said he's hasn't been to Chicago in many years.
