Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio watches as actor Steven Seagal addresses the media about a simulated school shooting in Fountain HillsBy David Schwartz PHOENIX (Reuters) - Controversial Arizona lawman Joe Arpaio is spending $1 million to buy 700 body cameras for sheriff's deputies as part of a court ruling that found his office racially profiled Latino drivers, the company selling the cameras said on Friday. The devices, which will be worn by officers to record their actions in the field, are due to be delivered to the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office by early March under an agreement with Scottsdale, Arizona-based TASER International Inc. TASER spokesman Steve Tuttle said the AXON Flex cameras would amount to "legal body armor" for deputies. The use of body cameras was among the requirements issued by U.S. District Court Judge Murray Snow in an order that stemmed from a 2007 racial profiling lawsuit brought on behalf of Latinos pulled over during traffic stops.
