LOS ANGELES — A 58-year-old retired Imperial County chief deputy sheriff, which is the highest appointed rank possible, recently proved he can still cut it as a bodybuilder.

Coming off of four surgeries and a 24-year hiatus from the sport, Steven Gutierrez won three gold medals at the Patriot’s Challenge Muscle Contest on July 11 in Las Vegas.
