The Arizona sheriff was told by a judge that he failed to follow an order on racial profiling.

Three years ago, U.S. District Judge Murray Snow ordered the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office, which Arpaio heads, to stop racially profiling people during traffic stops––mainly while conducting immigration sweeps aimed at Latino neighborhoods. After Arpaio’s seeming resistance to follow the order, Snow started hearings a year ago to determine whether Arpaio and the deputies were in contempt of court…

The ruling on Friday sets up a possible criminal contempt-of-court proceeding against the Maricopa County sheriff.
