He worked at a local junkyard, before he was appointed[2] deputy sheriff of Hazzard County when Enos decided to join the L.A.P.D.[3] Like Enos, he would often be forced by Rosco and Boss to chase the Dukes on trumped up charges, but while generally good-hearted and sometimes resentful of having to treat the Dukes in such way, he was generally more willing to than Enos.
