Muncie Police Chief Hopes Jack Osbourne Stays A Cop

MUNCIE, Indiana (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – The new CBS reality series Armed And Famous shows what happens when celebrities like Erik Estrada and Jack Osbourne decide to become reserve police officers.

But the police chief in Muncie, Indiana, where the show is set, wishes that Osbourne would be interested in becoming a cop fulltime.

Chief Joe Winkle says all five participating celebrities, including wrestler Trish Stratus, singer LaToya Jackson and pro skater Jason “Wee Man” Acuna, are doing a great job as reservists but some of them are limited by age requirements.

Says Winkle: “A fulltime officer can’t be over 36.”

With that in mind, he says Osbourne would make a great police officer because “he’s gifted at this. He works well with people.”

Winkle also gives high marks to Stratus, who he says shows compassion and is also physically fit.

Armed And Famous debuts Wednesday (Jan. 10) and Winkle hopes at least a few of the celebs maintain their status as reservists even after shooting wraps later this week.
