Arizona Man Files Claim Against Maricopa Sheriff’s Office

September 1, 2011

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 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.

Attempts were made Wednesday by The Associated Press to contact the sheriff’s office for comment.
