The Hulk is now a sheriff

There's a new sheriff in town! The man who once played the  Incredible Hulk back in the 70's, is a sheriff's deputy in New Mexico.

Lou Ferrigno will be deputized at a ceremony later this week (Jan. 16th).

Lou said: ”People assume it’s just an honorary thing. It isn’t, because I’m certified and I have police powers which I'm very proud of.” 

The 68-year-old will join the  Socorro County Sheriff’s Department . He will mostly be on desk duty as a recruiter but could be called to help in the field. 

Lou has also been a reserve deputy in California and patrolled the border as a volunteer with former Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio's posse.
