UPDATE: Awful television took a hit today the Steven Seagal: Lawman has halted filming (Click hereto view the BBC coverage), apparently in response to the lawsuit filed by his former assistant. The article goes on to say that there will not be any criminal charges since the allegations were never reported to the authorities. Seagal’s lawyer claims that she was fired for illegal drug use…
Of course he is alive, the New Orleans police don’t make it a habit of hiring the living dead to Patrol their streets and then show it on television, even if it is only A&E. The being sued part is the news though, as this article relates. Apparently a former assistant is suing him claiming that he kept her prisoner in a remote location with a pair of Russian Women, and they were all used as sex slaves. Personally, I think the idea that he would work as a lawman, and secretly be a depraved criminal is brilliant, just ask Dexter Morgan who stole the idea from him, travelled back in time and put his fiendish plans to work.
Now, I am not privy to all the facts in this case, but it seems to me that if she fled into a cab with a gun toting, slave keeping rapist close behind there might be criminal charges, or maybe even an investigation. Even Ben Roethlisberger is investigated from time to time… I understand the burden of proof and evidence admissibility vary between criminal and civil court, but something smells fishy. Besides, who could possibly believe that she could outrun Seagal. My guess is that when all is said and done neither side is completely innocent, and we will never know the full story. This might even be interesting if it was a story involving a celebrity!
