BREAKING: Maricopa County Sheriff's Office Back In National Reality TV Limelight

If you missed any or all of Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio's previous entrants in the popular reality TV genre, you now have a new chance.  Entertainment Weekly has just broken the news that the popular A&E cable network has greenlit a third season  of the reality show focusing on actor Steven Seagal's exploits as a MCSO Posse member.

The show was shut down last year after Seagal was accused of sex traficking.  Those claims were dropped, and now A&E is ready to bring back the popular Steven Seagal Lawman show.  Of course, Maricopa County residents are already familiar in an up-close-and-personal way with Seagal's lawman efforts, as he has been part of Arpaio's posses in the past.

The EW article/press release features the following interesting quote from Arpaio:  "Mr. Seagal has been on this horse before, so to speak, and will be an asset to this fine organization.  We look forward to working with him. We’re a little unusual here, which should make things pretty interesting.”

Not sure who the "we" that the Sheriff is referring to as being unusual.  Certainly, it is up for interpretation.
