Arpaio boasts his own "wack pack" of "special deputies" he's sworn in over time. Usually, they're has-been entertainers, such as Lou Ferrigno, Ted Nugent, and Steven Seagal. He even "swore in" some dude in a Spider-Man outfit.
Once in the bluest of moons, Joe scores a big star, like Shaquille O'Neal when he was with the Miami Heat. O'Neal became a special deputy in 2006. Years later, Arpaio got his revenge, rescinding Shaq's meaningless special deputy-ship, supposedly because of the salty language Shaq used in that infamous "Kobe...how my ass taste?" video.
