Lights, camera, action, lawsuit

We got us a convoy
Just when you thought things in Arizona couldn't possibly get any more ridiculous Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio decides to use his armored vehicles on a routine bust—with never-was actor Steven Seagal and his reality TV show crew in tow.
Sheriff Joe Arpaio rolled out the tanks to take down a man suspected of cockfighting. ....a nearby home had its windows blown out [and] was crawling with dozens of SWAT members in full gear, armored vehicles and a bomb robot.
KPHO (includes video)

And brown people
We already know what an asshole Sheriff Joe is. But Seagal is having some trouble enforcing the law himself:
"...according to Sheriff Normand, who once played host to Seagal's A&E reality series Steven Seagal: Lawman, the tough-guy Akido master resigned rather than face an internal affairs investigation by the JPSO into allegations of sex trafficking and sexual assault raised in a 2010 lawsuit by an ex-employee"
Phoenix New Times

Here's the funniest part—after his arrest the suspect refused to sign a release form allowing the video to be used on Seagal's TV show.

Thats the Seagal I've heard so much about... my uncle spent quite a bit of time with him several years ago looking at ranches. My uncle is a genuine tough guy, in the best way imaginable, and he had nothing good at all to say about Seagal. I think the kindest remark was something like "He's a fucking punk. Just a goddamn baby."
