The executive director of the Arizona Republican Party was arrested this morning at party headquarters in Phoenix.
It was unclear what the charge against Brett Mecum might be, but he was expected to arraigned later today.
Party officials wouldn’t talk on the record, but said they would put out a statement later today.
Mecum was apparently taken into custody by officers from the Arizona Department of Public Safety and the Phoenix Police Department.
Mecum was recently named executive director of the party. He had been political director during the 2008 election cycle .
