Sheriff Uses Reality Show to Catch Crooks

Dec 29, 2008  •  Post A Comment

Real life Arizona sheriff Joe Arpaio and his deputies have a starring role in a new show on Fox Reality Channel that springs stings on people with outstanding warrants, the Associated Press reports. People caught on camera must sign releases to be featured on the show, called “Smile . . . You’re Under Arrest!” and so far, no one has refused, the producer tells the wire service. “I think they wanted their 15 minutes, even if it was spent in handcuffs,” says Scott Satin. “Not one person tried to run or raised their voice.”

  1. Sheriff Joe has another ground-breaking opportunity. Go Joe. Wonder how much revenue he brings in.
