The 37-year-old Fields has been with the Morgan County Sheriff’s Office for the past 17 years. He’s worked as a corrections officer, in investigations, in the special victims unit and with drug-endangered children before being sworn in as a Deputy U.S. Marshal.
Of the Rock comparisons, Fields calls it a running joke that he’s happy to go along with:
“I’ve been called The Rock and Vin Diesel’s love child… I go along with it. It’s humorous. It’s flattering. It could be worse people, I guess.”
The Rock is too busy making money and slinging tequila to ever do some police work, but it would be pretty cool to see him pull a Shaq and become a Deputy at some point towards the end of his career. He definitely looks the part.
Basketball legend @SHAQ goes by many nicknames, and now added to that list is Deputy Shaq. The big man now works as an auxillary deputy with the #BSO. Sheriff Tony sat down with Shaq and the two talked about the different ways law enforcement works to keep communities safe. pic.twitter.com/H8j2lwUm0B
