Police arrested a 69-year-old man on Wednesday for dressing like a cowboy and waving a commando knife around on the streets of Emek Yizrael. During his interrogation, the man told the police that he was the "sheriff of Emek Yizrael," and that he aimed to "take care of criminal matters." According to reports, the man was already on probation for a previous conviction of possessing a knife. He will be brought to the Hadera Magistrate's Court later on Wednesday for a hearing on his remand.
