And he did it all for only a $1 a year!
Reserve Deputy Sheriff Shervin Lalezary stopped a man from terrorizing millions of Angelinos and he was rewarded on Ellen.
Lalezary stopped by the show to talk about the night he apprehended the arsonist but was hush hush on the deets.
At least Ellen got a few whispers!
Along with his accolades, Lalezary received double his annual salary (2 bucks) from Ellen but also an expenses paid trip to Australia!
Even the mayor of El Lay stopped by the show to present the hero a special token of recognition for his great deeds.
If you're looking Shervin, we'd love to go to Australia too!
Check out the video to see Ellen's interview with L.A. Fires hero!
