Jennifer Lopez and Al Roker Sued for Accusing Man of Being a Criminal on TV Show
A man is suing Jennifer Lopez 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.
In the show's episode aired in April, 19-year-old Draughn was labeled as a grand theft auto suspect and a New Orleans bounty hunter named Tat-2 was sent to go after him. Denying that he was a fugitive as it was stated on the show, he claims that he was battered into signing a release agreement.
Draughn goes on accusing the show for ruining his life, causing him injuries and costing his job. He blames former "American Idol" judge J.Lo and "Today" 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.
