Lou Ferrigno to become a sheriff's deputy

The Incredible Hulk will become a New Mexico sheriff's deputy, and Lou Ferrigno said this is for real. "People assume it’s just an honorary thing," the actor and bodybuilder said. "It isn’t, because I’m certified and I have police powers which I'm very proud of." The actor and bodybuilder will join the Socorro County Sheriff’s Department on Tuesday, the Guardian reports.

At 68, it's rather funny - and silly. Maybe he's bored.
I met him at a gun shop about 20 years ago; he was shopping for a scope. I happened to be standing next to him & after I recognized him, I said, "Why do I feel so small?" He chuckled.

I just remembered Shaquille O'Neal & Steven Segal did the same thing. They would have to have to be "Honorary," regardless of what they're saying.
There are age & height limits. I doubt anyone would be accepted for an official law enforcement officer at 68. He probably had some "official" training.
So did Tom Cruise for a movie role in "Collateral."

Interesting. The word "socorro" in Spanish means HELP!

Does he need the income ?.....I would think he could have saved a chunk from his acting days/days of fame?

Even a bodybuilder [retired] @ 68 ! They couldn't find younger men for the job?
