Sea­gal, sher­iff’s of­fice sued over re­al­ity show

The Washington Times Daily - - Television -

Ac­tor Steven Sea­gal and the Mari­copa County Sher­iff’s Of­fice are be­ing sued over a 2011 ar­rest that a Phoenix-area man said was staged for a re­al­ity TV show.

Ac­cord­ing to the As­so­ci­ated Press, Je­sus Llovera said Mr. Sea­gal and deputies un­law­fully raided his home be­cause they thought Mr. Llovera was rais­ing fight­ing roost­ers. Mr. Llovera said the birds on his prop­erty were for show and not for fight­ing.

The civil suit asks for a jury to de­ter­mine un­spec­i­fied mon­e­tary dam­ages.

The Ari­zona Repub­lic re­ports the sher­iff’s of­fice was par­tic­i­pat­ing in a re­al­ity show, “Steven Sea­gal: Law­man,” that fol­lowed Mr. Sea­gal’s ex­ploits as a dep­u­tized of­fi­cer.
