Steven Seagal Fighting Crime (For Real!)

What has action star Steven Seagal been doing since his box-office heyday of the mid 90s? Turns out he's been battling crime. For real: he's been working as an unpaid reserve deputy for Louisiana's Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office.

And now, it's all going to be on TV:

Seagal, 58, who has a second home in bayou country, is a fully commissioned deputy and spends several months a year in Louisiana. While on the force, he usually works five-day shifts.

Jefferson Parish Col. John Fortunato, who partners with Seagal on the 13-episode series, says Lawman captures deputies in a high-crime arena – interrogating suspects, breaking up fights, chasing bad guys and making arrests.

"It just so happens that Steven Seagal is a movie star, but this is not made for TV, where there are second takes or things staged," Fortunato says. "He's out patrolling areas where there's a considerable amount of crime. This is for real."

This seems totaly contrived imo (Reserve Deputies are required to work a minimum of 24 hours a month). Found this artical written for vanity fair going ito depth about Segal's connection with a top crime familly... (even his 1st wife apparently said Steven never worked for the CIA).

Holy crap imagine there's a cop banging on your door, you open it and it's Steven F-ing Seagal? I'd be looking for the cameras wondering when Ashton Kutcher is going to jump out and yell PUNKD!
