Williamson County Sheriff Robert Chody is unhappy with a joke made by comedian Seth Meyers on NBC's "Late Night" on Wednesday.

After touting his department's new cardboard deputies used to deter speeders, Meyers, during a segment called "Jokes Seth Can't Tell," had two of his writers deliver this joke:

A Texas sheriff has placed cardboard cutouts of officers holding radar guns on the side of several roads to deter speeding. And even one of those managed to shoot a black guy.

Watch the video below:

Chody tweeted his unhappiness with the joke and Meyers, initially stating that he was still part of "Saturday Night Live" and its "Weekend Update" segment:

Well, the #FlatWolf even got mentioned in a @SNLUpdate skit. Too bad they took the opportunity to use a proactive approach to serve the community and vilify police officers. @sethmeyers @FBCSO @nbcsnl #IKnowItsAJoke #NotAmused'
