Phoenix man files claim against sheriff’s office

- Associated Press - Friday, September 2, 2011

PHOENIX (AP) - A notice of claim has been filed against Maricopa County sheriff's detectives by a Phoenix man who claims humiliation, emotional distress and property damage from a high-profile raid on his property.

The Arizona Republic ( http://bit.ly/oWgjMW) reports the raid last March included actor Steven Seagal, his reality-TV camera crew and Sheriff Joe Arpaio's deputies all there to investigate an alleged cockfighting operation at Jesus Sanchez Llovera's Laveen home.

Llovera's claim seeks $25,000.

The Republic reports the cockfighting case is pending.

Due to the pending litigation, the sheriff's office said Wednesday it is not responding on this case.
