  • Steven Seagal, Sheriff Joe Raid Valley Home In Tank

    PHOENIX -- Sheriff Joe Arpaio rolled out the tanks to take down a man suspected of cockfighting.

    West Valley residents in the neighborhood are crying foul after armored vehicles, including a tank, rolled into their neighborhood to make the bust.

    Neighbor Debra Ross was so worried she called 911 and went outside where a nearby home had its windows blown out, was crawling with dozens of SWAT members in full gear, armored vehicles and a bomb robot.

    “When the tank came in and pushed the wall over and you see what's in there, and all it is, is a bunch of chickens,” Ross said.

    In a massive show of force on Monday, the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office executed a search warrant and arrested the homeowner, Jesus Llovera, on charges of suspected cockfighting.

    Llovera was alone in the house at the time of the arrest, and he was unarmed.

    “I think taxpayers should be shocked,” said Robert Campus, Llovera’s attorney. Campus said he believes the operation costs tens of thousands of dollars.

    Deputies had no probable cause to believe Llovera was armed or dangerous, according to Campus.

    Campus said he believes the entire scene was basically a stage, to help actor Steven Seagal’s TV show, “Lawman.”

    Seagal was riding in the tank.

    The Sheriff’s Department has entered into a contract with Seagal and part of that contract gives Seagal carte blanche to go along with the sheriff as he arrests people.

    Thousands of dollars in damages were made to the property and 115 birds were euthanized on the spot.

    Llovera was convicted of a misdemeanor last year of attending a cockfight and has no history of owning weapons.

    Yet the sheriff’s office said they had reasons to believe Llovera might be armed.

    “We're going to err on the side of caution. We're going to make sure that we have the appropriate amount of force in case we do run into anything like that,” said Sgt. Jesse Spurgin.

      just like the anti-palin folks that despite 'em....the 15 mins. will never be up as long as the vindictive obsession lets up from their opponents.

        I think they should do this for drug deals and stuff, that's pretty cool, I mean if you're gonna roll 40 deep in the hood, might as well do it with tanks!

          You think that was overkill you should see them on a taffic stop using that tank.

              why are they euthanizing the roosters "on the spot" when they are enforcing a law meant to protect said animals?

              not that im crying for the chickens, its just that it seems to go against the spirit of the law

                There's not actually a law against killing the chickens, just against treating them cruelly. I hope that doesn't change, 'cause I love me some citrus-grill chicken!

                    Sheriff Joe actually has a great program that rehabilitates abused horses and dogs.
                    Being a good street cop is like coming to work in a wet suit and peeing in your pants. It's a nice warm feeling, but you're the only one who knows anything has happened.

                      i was hoping to find the "tank" and expected and Abrams rolling through the house. some old woman confused an armored vehicle with a tank.

                        It was definitely for the show.

                          Did Segal use his super vision to see inside the house and locate the chickens.
