PHOENIX (AP) - A Scottsdale man has been arrested on charges accusing him of threatening to kill Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio.
The Sheriff's Office says 42-year-old Ignacio Carbajal was arrested at his home Monday evening after he allegedly posted internet comments saying he planned to kill Arpaio.
According to the Sheriff's Office, Carbajal told deputies that he wanted to kill Arpaio because of Arpaio's stance against illegal immigration.
The Sheriff's Office says deputies seized Carbajal's computer as evidence.
A sheriff's spokesman says he doesn't know whether Carbajal has an attorney.
