Following news that a sexual harassment and illegal sex trafficking lawsuit had been filed against Steven Seagal, production on the actor’s A&E reality series, Steven Seagal Lawman, has been halted. According to Variety, a sheriff of Jefferson Parish in Louisiana was responsible for stopping production on the show, which followed the actor as he worked as a deputy reserve sheriff in the area. In a statement obtained by Variety, A&E said, “We are aware of Sheriff [Newell] Normand’s decision to halt production on Steven Seagal Lawman at this time and we have no further comment.”
