    Ozzy Angered by ND Sheriff's Sting

    The Associated Press

    FARGO, N.D. -- Ozzy Osbourne wants an apology from the Cass County sheriff for staging a sting operation in the rocker's name without his permission.
    Osbourne claims his reputation was tarnished when Sheriff Paul Laney invited 500 people with outstanding warrants to a phony party at a Fargo nightclub before the rocker's concert with Rob Zombie at a nearby arena. More than 30 showed up and were arrested.
    "Instead of holding a press conference to pat himself on the back, Sheriff Laney should be apologizing to me for using my name in connection with these arrests," Osbourne said in a statement.
    "It is insulting to me and to my audience and it shows how lazy this particular sheriff is when it comes to doing his job," Osbourne said.
    Laney said Friday that it's his job to arrest people with outstanding warrants.
    "We meant no disrespect toward Mr. Osbourne or his show," Laney said. "What we did was a very creative law enforcement technique to lure individuals who had active criminal warrants to come to us."
    He said mentioning Osbourne's name in the invitations was no different than a bar advertising a Super Bowl party by mentioning the teams playing in the game.
    Laney said Monday's sting was done to let the community know his office was doing its best to serve about 3,000 outstanding warrants it must deal with.
    "They get very creative in how they abscond from the law," the sheriff said of the wanted individuals. "We just got real creative in how we reeled them in," Laney said.
    Not everyone is taking the sting personally, Laney said.
    "Three people called to say, 'I got one of those letters.
    Since you're being so creative, I'm turning myself in. Give me a court date,'" Laney said.

    Ozzy can stick to music. Or piss off.

    Or both.

    You can be the weapon, and the gun in your hand is a tool - or the gun is a weapon and you are the tool.


    I was looking for a saint who was a devil of a lover,
    but every girl I found was either one way or the other...

    Oh great, Ozzy's coming to Rapid tonight. He sounds like a liberal.

    With as much junk as the Ozzman's shoved in various parts of his body, you'd expect him to be conservative??

    Hell no! But with musicians, you never know.
