Steven Seagal Denies Arizona Puppy Killing

PHOENIX, Arizona ~(Associated Press)~ Actor Steven Seagal and Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio are furiously denying accusations that a family’s dog was killed during filming for Seagal’s reality television show.

For those who aren’t hip to what Steven Seagal has been up to lately, he has a show entitled Steven Seagal Lawman on the A&E channel.  In this particular episode he is a special deputy lawman under Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

It is unsurprising that Arpaio would allow a reality show to be filmed in his county, as he is a publicity hungry maniac, having starred in a three-episode pilot for Fox himself.  Other famous Arpaio antics include mandatory pink underwear for inmates and a “tent city” prison which Arpaio himself described as “a concentration camp,” although he later denied the comment despite it being recorded on video and plastered all over the internet.

Now Arpaio’s deputies, including Seagal stand accused to shooting an 11-month old puppy and killing over 40 roosters.

On March 9 deputies raided Jesus Llovera’s property with an arrest warrant for cockfighting.

Eyewitnesses of the raid state that there was indeed a dog on the property when the sheriff’s department stormed in.

It appears as if Seagal had no hand in such a crime, according to an interview KTAR in Phoenix he said that he was only to guard the outside of the house.

“We’re just sort of, you know, trying to guard one side of the house and see if anybody would run out…We’re kind of just doing that and I didn’t really enter the house that day.”

Arpaio, of course, denies that any crime took place stating that there is no evidence of such an incident.

Llovera never accused Seagal directly; he only filed a claim against the Sheriff’s Office.  He is seeking $25,000 for humiliation, emotional distress and property damage.
