A man is suing and Al Roker for portraying him in a negative way on national TV. Everette Draughn has filed the lawsuit in Louisiana against the two producers of Spike TV's "Big Easy Justice" after he was falsely accused of being a criminal on the show.

Draughn goes on accusing the show for ruining his life, causing him injuries and costing his job. He blames former "" judge J.Lo and "" weatherman Roker for the mishap, believing that they should have done their due diligence before falsely labeling him a criminal on the show. He is now seeking unspecified damages in the case, which is now on pending litigation.

Spike TV refuses to comment on pending litigation, while representative for J.Lo and Roker haven't returned a request for comment.
