According to an interview on the Lou Ferrigno website, becoming a sheriff is something Ferrigno has wanted his entire life:
“People assume it’s just an honorary thing. It isn’t, because I’m certified and I have police powers which I’m very proud of. So, I went through all the driving, the shooting, the studying, and it changed my life and I’m very happy to be a real-life hero, protecting life and property.”
