Sheriff & Seagal Strike

March 9, 2011 | 3:38 PM | News | By Staff

Don’t say we didn’t warn you. Less than 24 hours after we wrote about washed up action star, Steven Seagal, filming a Reality TV show about his adventures as a member of Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s ‘Immigration Posse,’ comes this shocking news. Yes, Sheriff & Seagal called out the local media to film them while they filmed themselves breaking up a cockfighting ring!

OK, so it was only one guy, and he was technically arrested for suspicion of ‘raising roosters for fighting,’ but still. We can totally see why they needed to send out the SWAT team, and tip off the media beforehand, and blast out a press release, and have Seagal being filmed while standing stoically outside the home wearing camouflage fatigues and ‘watching for activity.’

But that’s not even the most ridiculous part. You know, aside from Seagal’s Cheetos-colored face.

According to AZ Central, “The Sheriff’s Office received an anonymous tip, which led them to the home.” Of course, considering the suspect, Jesus Sanchez Llovera (pictured), was already on probation for (wait for it) cockfighting. you’d have thought the boys in blue might not need an anonymous tipster to remind them to keep an eye on Mr. Llovera.

But thank goodness they swooped in just in time to save the roosters, although Arpaio admitted he has no idea what will happen to the captive cluckers. Can we make a suggestion? Two words: Chicken Fingers.
