Remember Sheriff Joe Arpaio over in Maricopa County, Arizona? The "Sheriff Joe" that would put prisoners in tents rather than jail cells? Well, he's at it again, and this time he's got action hero Steven Seagal backing him up.

It seems there was suspicion of cock fighting at a local chicken farm and a raid was in order. So Sheriff Joe, the local SWAT team, Mr. Seagal and a tank, paid them a surprise visit.

That's when the ... um ... feathers ... hit the fan. Several neighborhood residents are crying "foul" claiming that excessive force was used. Some are even claiming that it was all a publicity act for Steven's TV show "Lawman". You can read the whole story from from KPHO News here.
