PHOENIX - Since 1992, when he was first elected sheriff, people have been delighted, shocked, angered, and amused by Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio.
Friday, FOX 10's John Hook and the sheriff sat down to lunch. Hook was told the sheriff hadn't eaten Mexican food in years because he was afraid someone would spit in it -- but that's just where they went.
Hook and Arpaio met at Juan's Authentic Mexican at 16th St and Thomas. The family that runs it doesn't support Sheriff Arpaio's controversial stance on illegal immigration, but they allowed them to dine there anyway.
They told FOX 10, "We want to set an example for the sheriff: that we open our doors and welcome everyone."
During their conversation, they talked plans for higher office, his policies, and the polarity of his supporters and opponents.
