Sheriff Joe Arpaio gave HLN host Nancy Grace a gift while she is in Phoenix, covering Jodi Arias. No, not a chocolate. No, not a pencil.
The Wrap has the very unusual story:
While HLN anchor Nancy Grace was visiting Arpaio on Tuesday, the controversial Sheriff gave her an intimate gift.
“I of course, am honored to receive another pair of the highly sought-after pink underwear, bestowed upon me by the legendary sheriff Joe Arpaio!” Grace told TheWrap. “And autographed by the sheriff himself!”
Why the pink underwear? Years ago, Sheriff Joe learned inmates were stealing white boxers — so he dyed them pink for better “inventory control,” according to his bio on the Maricopa County (Ariz.) website.
