Bedford County Sheriff Mike Brown said Wednesday that he has asked the Phoenix Suns center to return a badge he was given for his work with the southwest Virginia county's Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force.
Brown says O'Neal's likeness also will no longer be used to promote Operation Blue Ridge Thunder, a unit of the department that O'Neal worked with in investigating Internet predators. O'Neal served as a reserve deputy for the sheriff's department from 2004 through the end of 2007.
The decision comes one day after a sheriff in Arizona asked O'Neal to return a special deputy's badge because of language he used in the rap.
The freestyle rap was recorded and posted at TMZ.com.
