Steven Seagal sued over Arizona cockfighting bust




Following accusations of sex trafficking by a personal assistant, Steven Seagal's stint with Jefferson Parish law enforcement was terminated. Seagal headed to Arizona to work with controversial Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio and film the third season of his reality show Steven Seagal Lawman. Former Incredible Hulk actor Lou Ferrigno also signed on with the sheriff. But filming got interesting on a bust involving cockfighting investigations in which a man's puppy was accidentally killed. Now the homeowner says his roosters are just "for show," and is suing the sheriff and Seagal. Hollywood Reporter explains, and there's this item from the Arizona Republic. TPM also flagged the story, and has this on other celebs who have been deputized by Arpaio.
