Ready to rumble? Sheriff Joe Arpaio challenges George Lopez to throwdown

ABC15 sat down with George Lopez Friday night to ask the famous comedian straight up if he was going to accept Sheriff Joe's Arpaio's challenge to a throwdown.

We were the first to show you Lopez's standup routine from his HBO special last summer where he ripped into Sheriff Joe and his policies.

"Sheriff Joe in Arizona, **** you!" Lopez said during his HBO special called "It's Not Me, It's You."

Arpaio said the language angered him and he had a demand for Lopez. "Get some guts, come down here and meet me face to face. Let's see how you act then."

Lopez was in the Valley to do a show at the Celebrity Theatre and when we asked him if he was going to take the sheriff up on his offer, he refused to talk about Arpaio whatsoever.
