The sheriff had planned to have three chain gangs decked out in striped jail garb posted around Chase Field during the game.

One was to be made up entirely of undocumented immigrants convicted of drunken driving.

Arpaio regularly uses his chain gangs to draw publicity for his tough-on-crime message.

The sheriff also placed chain gangs near the 2008 Super Bowl.
