It's eerily reminiscent of an ISIS video.

Sheriff Peyton Grinnell is sick of the heroin epidemic in Lake County, Florida. And if he has to scare the shit out of anybody who’s thinking about taking or dealing the drug, he and his buddies are clearly willing to do it.

In a public service announcement published late last week, Grinnell filmed himself at a podium surrounded by masked, presumably undercover, policeman—an image eerily reminiscent of something ISIS might produce—and gave a warning to those who sell heroin.

“Enjoy trying to sleep tonight wondering if tonight’s the night our SWAT team blows your front door off the hinges,” Grinnell warned. And it gets even more intense from there.

Kudos to Grinnell for cutting the greatest wrestling heel promo I’ve ever seen. Or perhaps it’s something a little more dastardly.
