UPI -

Actor and martial arts specialist Steven Seagal has been sworn in as a New Mexico sheriff’s deputy, officials said.

The El Paso (Texas) Times reported the 60-year-old action film star was sworn in as a Dona Ana County deputy by Sheriff Todd Garrison Tuesday.

He is considered a reserve officer and can carry out police work only while accompanied by a commissioned peace officer. The actor is expected to take part in border security training soon, the newspaper said.

Seagal became a part-time deputy in sparsely populated Hudspeth County in far West Texas in 2011. He also headlined the A&E reality series “Steven Seagal: Lawman,” which followed his adventures as a deputy with the Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office in Louisiana.

It’s time for Steven to go to Chicago.

    LOL Funny! I saw him walking down the street in Sedona, Az a few years back. We were rolling down the main street there & I glanced up & had to do a double-take. It was bizarre because he was wearing the same kind of suit he’s worn in a lot of movies..Kind of like a cross between a karate thing & scrubs in pastel yellow…And he had his Seagal ponytail. Just walking down the street in broad daylight. Weird story, true story. ;-)

    Claudia, It’s a classic. I think they played it for two weeks and took it off the Tee Vee.

    I saw one of these shows where he was working with the Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s department. He emptied a clip of his 9mm through the same hole in the center of the target. That’s my kind of gun control.

    By the looks of him last time I saw him on TV, there’s about to be donut shortage in NM.

    I got a thrill down my leg watching Segal as part of a SWAT effort to bowl over a guy’s house that was part of…

    raising roosters.

    I’ll pass on this one.

    @Bad Brad – LOL – never saw that before. Both clips were good. Do the Dew. I’m not a huge Segal fan but I’ll watch when he’s on. Hope he does well in NM.
