Ted Nugent's Still a "Special Deputy" to Sheriff Joe Arpaio

We almost forgot about when the "Motor City Madman" Ted Nugent -- known in more recent days simply as a madman -- was deputized by Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

Turns out, Nugent's still a "Special Deputy" to Arpaio, a sheriff's office spokesman confirms to New Times.

Nugent's been in the news recently for making really awkward, super right-wing comments about President Obama and Democrats, saying in reference to the Dems that "we need to ride into that battlefield and chop their heads off in November," adding that he'd be "dead or in jail by this time next year" upon Obama's potential reelection.

Nugent had to meet with the Secret Service for the special brand of jackassery he presented during a National Rifle Association meeting a couple weeks ago, and the Army canceled a show he was supposed to perform at Fort Knox in June.

Nugent's also expected to plead guilty to a crime today for illegally killing a black bear in Alaska while filming a TV show.

As part of the plea agreement, according to Reuters, Nugent will land on probation, will be banned from hunting in Alaska or on Forest Service land for a year, has to pay a fine, and film a public-service announcement about not breaking the law while hunting.

Nugent's last crimes came in 2010, when he violated a couple laws in California while deer hunting, losing his deer-hunting license and pleading guilty to deer baiting and not having a properly signed tag, according to Reuters.

Meanwhile, Arpaio swore in Nugent as a "Special Deputy" in August 2010.

We've tried to get a precise definition of "Special Deputy" before -- as has Arpaio election foe Mike Stauffer -- but we were unsuccessful in that venture (no response from the sheriff's office).

"Special Deputy" status isn't permanent, we know, since the baller formerly known as Shaqtus, Shaquille O'Neal, was stripped of his status after Arpaio got upset that O'Neal dropped the n-bomb in his rap about his former Los Angeles Lakers teammate Kobe Bryant -- the "Kobe how my ass taste?" performance.

Still, after committing a few crimes and acting like a complete weirdo, Nugent's still "Special" to Sheriff Arpaio.

using bait to hunt, who would have thought?

While hunting over bait is legal in AZ ,it is illegal in California. Nugent not only was banned from hunting in California until June 2012,but also in about 35 other states that are part of a hunting compact. A violation in a compact state also prohibits you from hunting in any of the other compact states. Nugent once again considered himself above the law,while being banned from hunting in any compact state ,he ignored the law and was caught illegally hunting in North Dakota,I do believe......He had many more violations in California,which his lawyers managed to have dropped.............It is obvious that Nugent considers himself above the law.

I'm not surprised at all that Joe and Ted are tight. I had the misfortune of seeing this pig in concert  on 15 March 1977 in Offenbach, Germany (I still have the ticket, that's why I know the date) when I was in the Army. The first thing Ted Nugent did when he got on stage was go into a raciest rant about the Monks at the airport who where giving out pamphlets. He used some of the foulest words in the English language. He not only tore into their religion, he went after their ethnicity (Chinese I believe but I'm not sure, it was along time ago). By the time he was done, I and the folks I was with, felt embarrassed that this pig was an American Citizen, and by virtue of his presence in Germany in this very public forum, represented this country.

So no, I'm not surprised that Joe and Ted are friends and support each other. It's that whole birds of a feather thing.

Yet another reminder that there's still a maximum IQ in effect for any "Special" Deputy.  Why do you think it's called "special" in the first place?

I can see how the shurf and Nugent could relate to one another...

The only difference is Nugent might be somewhat sane...

Big whoop! Garbage cavorts with garbage. What's the surprise here?

 Didn't Nugent shit on himself to avoid being inducted into the army during the Vietnam War? No wonder America's self-proclaimed toughest sheriff finds him so appealing.

Nugent used to live just down the road a piece from me back in Michigan. He always was a piece of work. Hadn't heard that anecdote, though. His fellation of cops has been common knowledge for decades, though. I remember seeing him perform with the Amboy Dukes back in MI 40 years back when he sang a scatological little ditty about abusing a dog.

 The story I heard is that he shit on himself for several days to qualify for a draft deferment. He is a coward and a cynical opportunist who turned and ran when his country needed him. He is a nothing burger. A shit talker and a piss-poor musician. Nothing more.

No surprise the looney tune Nugent is one of Arpaio's civilian posse!:-) Now his 16 year old mistress now wife when he was 30 reminds me of the old Strom Thurmond segregationist who after he died his bi-racial daughter by a house keeper who was 16 when he was 25, is par for the course for them hypocrites who seem to say do as I say not as I do, both under the right circumstances, state laws would be pedophiles!

 Nugent is a perfect fit for Arizona. Don't forget Colorado City, the town that was founded with pedophilia in mind. Even though they FINALLY prosecuted Jeffs, the town is still controlled by the same perverse religion and NOTHING is being done to protect the young girls these perverts are victimizing, and have victimized, since all the publicity died down.

Does Arpaio's special posse have anyone who doesn't have a criminal record and/or isn't a pervert?

Arpiehole's up to his stupid media stunts once again. Who gives a rats ass if the corrupt criminal sheriff gives "Special Deputy" status(whatever the hell that means) to a washed up,has been,never writing a new song guitarist like Ted Nugent........Just shows that ,like Arpiehole,Nugent feels he is above the law. Myself and all the other hunters and fisherman I know follow the rules set by Game & Fish authorities. In not following the rules, you are thumbing your nose at all the other law abiding hunters and fishermen. Get over yourself Nugent,YOU are no better and are not above the law,even if  the corrupt criminal sheriff of Maricopa County plays you out to be. Remember you are being made a "Special Deputy" by a sheriff who is currently under Federal investigation by the DOJ.........Oh that's right,right wing extremist such as yourself loath the Federal Goverment so you would more than likely consider any Federal Investigation into you or Arpiehole's wrong doings a badge of honor.......Truely is sad,the lengths that some people will go to for publicity............................Sure is funny how Arpiehole chooses to buddy up to and make "Special Deputies" of washed up C list "celebrities"..........Pathetic .

Both Nugent and Seagal should hold an event with Sheriff Joke!  They both have this thing for underage girls after all..

Have Seagal in the tank and Nugent with his metal manhood, and see which one can kill a defenseless puppy first!

Isn't the Nuge doing his "White" Supremacist" Tour?

And I wonder how hard it was to earn that Junior Arpaio Racist Deputy Badge?

Nothing new to Joes "posse", since most have felonies or other convictions (and yet are allowed to carry guns!?) anyways. Drugs, rapes, etc..yep, these are the people doing "crime sweeps"..lol

Is the posse application subject to public records law. Was a background check done?

 They checked with Nugent's wife.  The one he was made "legal guardian" of when he was 30 and she was 16.

She was a great reference.  And STILL call's Ted "Daddy"!
