Buford Pusser Biography
Birthday: December 12, 1937 (Sagittarius)
Born In: Adamsville, Tennessee
Buford Pusser was the sheriff of McNairy County, Tennessee, in the late 60s and is known in history as one of the bravest American real life heroes of all time. He singlehandedly waged war against drug trafficking, smuggling, moonshining and prostitution around the Mississippi-Tennessee state line. Buford was born to a sheriff father in McNairy County and was an avid sportsperson during his high school years. Owing to his tall built and physical strength, he also ended up indulging in professional wrestling for some time in the late 50s before he returned home and settled down with his family. There he got a job in the police department of Adamsville and worked there for a few years in the early 60s. He was appointed the sheriff of McNairy County in 1964 and became the youngest man ever to be honoured with the position. When he took over the position, the county was suffering with anti-social elements and was known as one of the most dangerous places to live in the entire state. He went out on a spree to clean his county out. Several assassination attempts were made on him, one of which took the life of his wife. Buford died in August 1974 in a road accident.
