Ex-Reality TV Star Arrested for Smuggling Heroin in Bean and Cheese Burrito

A Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department (LASD) deputy has been arrested for allegedly smuggling a bean-and-cheese burrito filled with heroin into a courthouse jail.

As it happens, the deputy in question, Henry Marin, isn’t just any old deputy. He’s a vet from the Fox reality show The Academy. On the program, Marin fell asleep in front of cameras on his first day as an LASD recruit and eventually flunked out of the LA Sheriff’s Academy before a nationally televised audience.

You just can’t make this stuff up.

From the LA Times:

Marin’s subpar performance eventually led to his ouster from Academy Class 355 for flunking two role-playing exercises. In one, he failed to call for help after a suicidal woman brandished a gun and he was unable to recall the radio code for an emergency. “You blew this one, big time,” his instructor says.

After he failed a second scenario, Marin was dismissed from the academy. “You seem to have no knowledge or understanding of the laws that guide you and allow you to do certain things,” a sergeant tells him on the show when he was let go. Marin was allowed to re-enroll in a later academy class and successfully graduated, a department spokesman said.

Marin was relieved of duty and is out on $25,000 bail.
