Steven Seagal Lawsuit
March 11, 2012 by staff
Steven Seagal Lawsuit, Steven Seagal is being sued by an Arizona man over a raid in which Seagal and sheriff’s deputies used a SWAT tank and other armored vehicles to bust up an alleged cckfighting ring at his home for the A&E show “Steven Seagal: Lawman.”
In the civil suit filed Tuesday — which also names the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Department — Jesus Llovera claims that the March 10, 2011 raid on his Laveen, Ariz., residence was excessive, and played up for the sake of the show, AZ Central reports.
It involved a SWAT team, a bomb robot and 40 deputies. Seagal was joined by Maricopa County’s self-proclaimed “America’s Toughest Sheriff,” whose headline-grabbing antics have included making jail inmates wear pink underwear and investigating President Obama’s birth.
Deputies from the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Department said they believed that Llovera, who had earlier pleaded guilty to attending a May 2010 cckfight, had roosters and chickens on his property in violation of his probation, and that he was raising birds to fight, a felony.
Law enforcement discovered more than 100 roosters on the property, some bearing alterations suggesting that they had been bred for cckfighting, authorities said. The birds were subsequently euthanized.
Llovera was charged with raising animals for cckfighting and possession of dangerous drugs, which he allegedly used on the animals. His attorney has requested that evidence in the case be tossed, saying that the warrant was not properly served.
