Steven Seagal May Face Legal Trouble Over Raid

Steven Seagal is being threatened with a lawsuit over his part in a police raid that was taped for his A&E reality show, according to TMZ

The actor, who has served as a reserve deputy sheriff since the mid-’80s, was part of a team that arrived at Jesus Sanchez Llovera’s Arizona house in March with a tank and armed in full riot gear, Llovera alleges in his legal documents.

Llovera claims that the raid, carried out by the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Department, was “unfounded” because they believed Llovera was raising roosters for illegal cockfighting. But he says the roosters are only “for show.”

Llovera — who served both Seagal and Sheriff Joe Arpaio with an official notice of claim, the first step toward a lawsuit — says his 11-month-old puppy was shot and killed during the raid and that police also killed more than 100 of his roosters. Additionally, he says the police rammed the tank into a gate on his property and that his home suffered “substantial damage.”

Llovera is seeking $100,000 in damages and wants a “formal written apology” from Seagal to his children for the death of their puppy, “a beloved family pet.” According to TMZ, the entire incident was recorded for Seagal’s reality show, ‘Steven Seagal Lawman’. A&E declined comment when contacted by The Hollywood Reporter. Seagal and the Maricopa County authorities have yet to comment.

    oh please….. poor ESE, is just wanting a fast buck from an actor and who really knows if this dog was a family pet, and really loved, this guy probably had it on the property to protect the chicken fights, this is bullcrap, since when is a raid questioned, it is like war, when someone is at fault, and animals get in the way of a raid, and if a cop doesnt know if a dog is violent and if it infact attacts officers, THEY HAVE THE RIGHT TO SHOOT IT, did ESE know this? It is obvious when an officer thinks his life is at stake with a loose dog being nuts towards officers, THEN THE COPS HAVE THE RIGHT TO SHOOT ON SITE, I know cause mine even though he was a house dog and never turned on anyone, but when he was left outside to go pee and a cop came to my home invited to check out something i had a question about, my dog didnt know this person in a dark uniform and was protecting his territory, but also bit the cop and i was lucky, he let go of the cops leg but the cop told me he was this close to shooting him and the judge also told me that I am lucky that Lucky didnt get shot…. So who really knows the truth,,, an actor is involved and fame, for ESE so this , again, is bull crap…… this country is sue happy,,,,,, I hope the judge is not an ass h-le!!!
