To accompany the audio recordings we published yesterday, where Pinal County Sheriff's Deputy Louie Puroll confirms his claim of a supposed death threat made against New Times reporter Paul Rubin by a Mexican rancher, and discusses being approached by Mexican cartels he claims tried to get him to look the other way as they moved contraband through the southern Arizona desert, we figured Valley Fever-ers might enjoy some video, compliments of our friends at www.toonthenews.com.
See the two videos, including some footage of Louie in the tub, after the jump.

Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
