Disgraced former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, who became notorious for the mistreatment of latino detainees, is now complaining about the treatment of former President Donald Trump by Fulton County, Georgia officials.

Trump shared Arpaio’s statement on his Truth Social page, in which Arpaio criticized Fulton County Sheriff Patrick Labat for placing Trump in what he referred to as a “dangerous jail.” Arpaio accused Labat of using excessive measures during Trump’s arrest and booking, going so far as to prominently display his badge and name alongside Trump’s face for publicity.

Furthermore, Arpaio insinuated that Labat might be following directives from Fani Willis. Arpaio also took the opportunity to pay tribute to the former president, who has faced two impeachments and now contends with indictments in four different jurisdictions on numerous felony charges. Arpaio, despite his controversial past, expressed deep admiration for Trump, referring to him as his “one and only hero” after 85 years of life.

“It took me… 85 years to find my one and only hero in life. His name is Donald J. Trump,” wrote Arpaio.

In 2017, Arpaio was convicted of contempt of court for deliberately defying a federal judge’s order to cease racially profiling Latinos, though he was subsequently pardoned by Trump.

In 2011, a federal judge had already instructed Arpaio to halt his department’s practice of pulling over Latino motorists based on the suspicion of their immigration status. Nevertheless, Arpaio persisted in targeting Latino drivers for stops, resulting in the wrongful detention of approximately 170 individuals over the 18 months following the court order.
