Steven Seagal Denies That a Puppy Was Killed During Reality Show Raid

Steven SeagalAccording to the Associated Press, actor Steven Seagal and Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio have denied accusations by a Phoenix man and his lawyer that a family pet was killed during a raid filmed for Seagal's reality TV show.

TMZ earlier reported that Seagal took part in a March 9 raid on the home of Jesus Llovera for his A&E show, 'Steven Seagal: Lawman.'

Llovera alleges that Seagal arrived at his home with a tank, which he rammed into a gate on his property, and that an 11-month-old puppy was killed during the raid along with 100 roosters.

Seagal said he's outraged by the allegation, and Sheriff Arpaio said it is without merit. "If my deputies, or posse man Seagal for that matter, had done something so awful like shooting a family dog, then where are the photos to prove it?" Arpaio asked.

Lindsay LohanLindsay Lohan has managed to book herself an actual TV job between all those court appearances.

Um, sort of. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the troubled actress will read the top 10 list on 'The Late Show With David Letterman' on Thursday night. It's not exactly acting, but if it means that Lohan's in front of an actual TV camera instead of a paparazzi lens, we'll take it.

Lohan was charged with grand theft last week for allegedly stealing a necklace worth $2,500 from a Los Angeles jeweler.

As far as Shia LaBeouf is concerned, there's no greater butt-kicking movie star than Steven Seagal. And Seagal's trademark ponytail is the ultimate accessory for an action hero, so much so that he wanted one when he was young, he said on 'Live With Regis and Kelly' (weekdays, syndicated).

Cops Shut Down Steven Seagal: Lawman

by Brad Trechak, posted Apr 15th 2010 9:29AM

Steven SeagalSteven Seagal just can't stop sliding down the fame scale into obscurity and legal trouble. First he gets cast in a reality program as a deputy sheriff (titled 'Steven Seagal: Lawman') and then the same program gets shut down by the very police he's working for due to the star getting accused of sex trafficking.

For those unaware, a recently-hired female assistant who was also a former model accused Seagal of, to say the least, inappropriate behavior. Check the original article for lurid details. Even worse, Seagal's former assistant before the recent hire was hired out of Russia and he was doing pretty much the same things to her (hence the "sex trafficking" accusation). This further proves my theory that it is a bad idea to answer any Craigslist ad (yes, it was a Craigslist ad).

At least this is a good set-up for the inevitable sequel reality television show: 'Steven Seagal, Inmate.'

A&E Wants More Steven Seagal's 'Lawman'

by Danny Gallagher, posted Feb 19th 2010 8:02PM
Are your favorite TV police officers not squinting enough? Then tune that TV on over to A&E!

A&E has renewed their popular reality series (there's two phrases I thought I would never use in the same sentence: "A&E" and "popular reality series") 'Steven Seagal: Lawman' for another season.

The network has submitted a 16-episode order for the show's new season, just three more than the first season. The network has also been more than pleased with its 2.1 million average reviewer rating, more than half of which is from the coveted 18 to 34 year old demographic. Just imagine. If the show gets popular enough, it might become an actual movie. Finally! Seagal will have a chance to do some real acting.

Steven Seagal: Lawman -- An early look

Steven Seagal: Lawman
When I heard that Steven Seagal had a new A&E series coming out called Steven Seagal: Lawman, I thought, oh great, another cop show starring an aging movie star. But that's not what it is at all! Ok, I'll qualify that. Yes, it IS a cop show starring an aging movie star, but probably not what you think.

Turns out that Steven Seagal, best known for his action movies like Above the Law, Hard to Kill, and Under Siege, has been quietly working under the radar for the past 20 years as a real-life deputy with the Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office in Louisiana. Part of his duties there include instructing the other officers on weapons skills and martial arts.

Apparently when he's not making bad-ass movies like Under Siege, Exit Wounds, or my personal favorite, Today You Die, Steven Seagal is a Deputy Sheriff in Jefferson Parish, Louisiana and he's been doing it for 20 years.

Can it get better? Yes. Starting in December, A&E is sending cameras along with him.
