SOCORRO, N.M. — Lou Ferrigno, the actor in the CBS television series “The Incredible Hulk,” is slated to become a sheriff’s deputy in New Mexico.
Socorro County Sheriff William Armijo is scheduled to deputize Ferrigno next week at a special ceremony.
Officials say Ferrigno will bring decades of law enforcement experience to the department and be instrumental in recruiting for the department and the county.
The 68-year-old Ferrigno has served as a reserve sheriff’s deputy in Los Angeles County and a member of the volunteer sheriff posse in Maricopa County, Arizona.
Ferrigno played the Hulk in the 1970s television series.
