Wanna know what really happened to Pinal County Sheriff's Deputy Louie Puroll? So do we. Unfortunately, the truth may never come out -- even after the Department of Public Safety analyzes the teeshirt he says he was wearing when he was shot.

There's no shortage of theories as to what actually happened in the desert on April 30, and one of them has found its way to Youtube.

It's bizarre -- neither of the characters look anything like Puroll (one kinda looks like Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu, though), the animation looks like a poorly made video game, and at the end, nobody even gets shot.

The hillbilly-speak used by the two "officers" is funny, though, and worth checking out.

Have a look after the jump.
