Steven Seagal with fascist Sheriff Joe Arpaio
In a surprising new low, "B"-grade actor, former martial artist and current "Lord of Pasta" Steven Seagal is denying that he killed a puppy in an Arizona police raid.
Yes, Seagal - a wanna-be spook, army man and SWAT team Nazi played dress-up in Cammie Jammies and raided some dudes home in Phoenix resulting in the death of an 11 month-old puppy and 100 chickens.
From "The Huffington Post":
"Seagal and numerous deputies and posse members were present March 9 during a raid at the home of Jesus Llovera. In the claim, Llovera says an 11-month-old puppy was killed along with 100 roosters.
According to witnesses at the raid, a dog was present on Llovera's property when deputies and SWAT team members, including Seagal, entered the premises with a search warrant to arrest Llovera on cockfighting charges and seize all evidence pertaining to the crime"
"Llovera's attorney, Robert Campos, told The Associated Press Friday his client didn't accuse Steven Seagal of killing an animal on his property in a notice of claim filed against the sheriff's office.
"My client never accused Seagal of having anything to do with the death of his puppy," Campos said. "He (Llovera) just wanted an apology from Seagal for his role in the destruction of my client's home, property and animals."
"In Llovera's claim, the sheriff's office and Seagal are accused of setting off explosives to create a distraction and confusion. The claim says Seagal was free to commandeer a tank and crash through an iron gate on the southeast corner of Llovera's property in southwest Phoenix.
In an interview with KTAR Radio in Phoenix during the March raid, Seagal said he was there to help guard one side of Llovera's house.
"We're just sort of, you know, trying to guard one side of the house and see if anybody would run out or anything like that or, do anything worse than that," Seagal said. "We're kind of just doing that and I didn't really enter the house today."
Hmm. So let's see if we get this right; Seagal really does not participate in any of this wanna-be cop foolishness.
He just stands around the corner eating doughnuts and drinking coffee waiting for photo ops.
