It's a new sherriff in town, and it ain't Reggie Hammond
Reggie Hammond is an Eddie Murphy character from 48 Hours, an 80’s movie about a convict (Murphy) and a cop (Nick Nolte) who team up to catch a cop-killer; it is often credited as being the first “buddy cop” film. At one point Murphy memorably exclaims: “There’s a new sheriff in town and his name is Reggie Hammond.”
