Sheriff Joe Arpaio challenges George Lopez
Maricopa County, Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio is not happy with comedian George Lopez.
Lopez lashed out at Arpaio, using profanity in English and Spanish to describe the sheriff in his latest comedy special which aired Saturday night on HBO.
Arpaio responded to Lopez by saying, "Get some guts. And come down here, and meet me face to face," Phoenix affiliate ABC 15 reported.
Arpaio is known for his outspoken opinions on illegal immigration. He is being sued by the Department of Justice for alleged discrimination against Latinos.
Arpaio has also asked for an apology from Lopez. A representative for Lopez was asked about Arpaio's response and released a statement saying, "there is no further comment."
