Trending Video News: Sublette County, Wyoming – Sheriff Stephen Haskell Bans Cowboy Boots And Hats

The sheriff in Sublette County has banned cowboy boots and hats. He is Stephen Haskell. This story is being run by the Christian Science Monitor. They don’t have video coverage yet. But there are some photos.

Only deputies are banned from the cowboy garb, not regular residents.

Haskell is the new sheriff in town, and he’s apparently going to make sure his deputies know who is in charge.

As to why, Haskell says that it is for safety and for uniformity among deputies. He claims cowboy boots, for example, are not good for walking on ice. And he says that the cowboy garb just isn’t professional as a uniform.
