Polk County Sheriff says he'll arrest anyone with a warrant who tries to go to shelters

While the record-breaking Hurricane Irma tracks toward Florida, Polk County Sheriff and resident big boy with a badge Grady Judd says he'll arrest anyone with a warrant who seeks shelter from the Category 5 storm.

The Sheriff went to Twitter this morning to simultaneously express his asinine thoughts and actively endanger the people he's supposed to protect.
I suppose Judd believes that "Serve and Protect" means inspiring people to ride out a catastrophic storm rather than seek shelter because they failed to appear in court, or have unpaid traffic tickets.



Nice job, Judd.
