Worcester County is about to get a new reserve sheriff, none other than Reserve Miami Beach Police officer Shaquille O’Neal. In a private ceremony tomorrow, Worcester County Sheriff Lew Evangelidis is expected to swear Shaq in as a reserve deputy sheriff.
The 15-time All-Star NBA player will spend time with the clients and then be sworn in as a member of the Worcester County Reserve Deputy Sheriff Association. The event is not open to the public.
Mr. O’Neal, who is active in community and charitable work, will be the first member of the organization sworn in by Sheriff Evangelidis.
“The sheriff is committed to expanding the role that the WCRDSA plays in local communities and hopes that making Shaq his first member will help set the tone for others to volunteer to give back to their communities,” said sheriff spokesman David Tuttle.
Future Sheriff O’Neal is expected to be the first member of the department taller than the current boss, the 6’7″ Evangelidis.
