Police search for "worst of the worst": Clint Eastwood Maez

Posted: Updated:
PHOENIX (KSAZ) -

He's one of the most legendary Hollywood actors: Clint Eastwood -- known for his tough cop and cowboy roles.  In the movies, you mess with him and you'll pay dearly.

Now Phoenix police are on the lookout for Clint Eastwood, but not the tough actor -- a real bad guy -- a guy Clint Eastwood's characters would want to take down himself.

His full name is Clint Eastwood Maez. This guy has been on wanted billboards before.

Last year, police used his middle initial, E, but because he name is so unusual, on this billboard, they used his full name.

But people familiar with him are so scared of him, they didn't want to talk with us about him on camera.

Clint Eastwood played "the good" in "The Good, The Bad and The Ugly," but police say this Clint Eastwood, Clint Eastwood Maez -- would be the bad.

His face is now on Silent Witness billboards.

"That's his actual birth name.. is Clint Eastwood.  Middle name Eastwood, last name Maez.  And he does go by Clint Eastwood at times," said Silent Witness' Sgt. Darren Burch.

Court documents show Maez has multiple felony convictions.  The 22-year-old has felony warrants for parole violations and now police say he's wanted for shooting two people in a drive-by shooting near 27th Avenue and McDowell two weeks ago.

"This is a bad character.. has a bad history," said Burch.

Maez's photo is on billboards across the valley, but police say they really saturate the Maryvale area -- the place they say he is most well known.

"He's really embedded in the Maryvale community.  We believe there are individuals hiding him actively.  He knows he's wanted," said Burch.

Police say Clint Eastwood Maez is considered armed and dangerous and should not be approached.  Call 911 if you see him.

"For us to put him on a billboard and saturate the valley, he's got to be the worst of the worst and he is," said Burch.  "There are so many people that are afraid of him.. Silent Witness is perfect to get the message out. That way, they can stay safe and anonymous."

If you have any information about this case, call Silent Witness.  You can remain anonymous and receive a cash award for tips leading to an arrest or indictment.
