Led by a man posing as "King Arpaio," the group crashed a Maricopa County Board of Supervisors meeting Wednesday.
Protesters want the county board to condemn the sheriff and jail operations for its botched sex-crime investigations, which has nothing to do with the settlement vote.
The board was set to approve a more than $3 million settlement for the family of Deborah Braillard. She died in 2005 after the sheriff's office allegedly denied her diabetes medication for several days.
"No family should have to wait for 10 years for justice, especially when they're tortured and don't get insulin in the jails and that's what happened to this Braillard family," Randy Parraz, the protest group leader, said.
The board chairman ended up shutting down the meeting after the protest got out of hand. There were no arrests.
