Arizona Agency Offers Alternative to Sheriff Joe's Tent City

March 02, 2011  | 

The Scottsdale (Ariz.) Police Department is offering an alternative to drivers convicted of DUI, allowing them to do their time in holding cells offering what some say are friendlier confines than Sheriff Joe Arpaio's Tent City.

For $200 per night, inmates can spend their time in Scottsdale, eating frozen meals indoors rather than spooning up a "horrific mixture of odds and ends" under the blazing sun in Tent City, reports MyFoxPhoenix.

Way to go Scottsdale, I love it. Not only are you making money but Big Joe will have more room to fill up his jail. I love Sheriff Joe, take no shit, kick ass and take names. I think Sheriff Joe should run for President and help straighten out this country. You can also hire Walmart top excs to help you get the job done .
