Shaq joins the Bedford County Sheriff's Department!

Yep, you read that right! Shaquille O'Neal was sworn in as a Bedford County sheriff's deputy this week. While he won't be receiving pay, he was issued a standard side arm and an SUV with the words Operation Blue Ridge Thunder on the side. Shaq was deputized as part of his role as spokesperson for the Safe Surfin' Foundation. While in this role, he is going to film several public service announcements, tour schools, and help to raise funds. Shaq's SUV had to be specially fitted for his 7'1" frame by removing the back seat and moving the front seat back 14 inches. So, don't think you need your eyes checked if you are driving down the road and see this fellow driving along side. There is even word that he may buy land in this area.
