Sheriff Joe Arpaio sued by justice department – from BBC

In one case cited by the lawsuit, a sheriff’s officer stopped a Latino woman – a US citizen who was five months pregnant – as she pulled into her driveway and insisted she sit on the hood of her car.

“When she refused, the officer grabbed her arms, pulled them behind her back, and slammed her, stomach first, into the vehicle three times,” the suit said.
