PHOENIX - Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Arizona plans to return to work Monday after spending more than two weeks recuperating from a broken shoulder suffered when he fell while crossing a street on his way to lunch.
The Maricopa County sheriff tells The Associated Press that he remains in pain from the Feb. 28 injury, but is eager to return to work after spending about two days in a hospital and then two weeks at his home.
The sheriff says he tripped on a sidewalk near his headquarters on his way to a restaurant to get a quick bowl of soup. He fell on his shoulder and broke it in two places.
He says he came close to hitting his head on a curb, but was fortunate to walk away with no other injuries, besides a few scrapes.
