Jennifer Lopez and Al Roker Sued over Bounty Hunter Show

Spike TV(NEW YORK) -- A man in Louisiana has filed a lawsuit against Jennifer Lopez and Al Roker, claiming their Spike TV reality show called Big Easy Justice falsely labeled him a criminal on national television, reports TMZ.com.

Everette Draughn, who is 19 years old, said the show made him the subject of a nationally-televised manhunt.  The show, which is produced by Roker and Lopez, is about a New Orleans bounty hunter named Tat-2.

Draughn's episode aired in April, and the show labeled him as a fugitive who had committed grand theft auto.  However, Draughn claims he did not commit a crime and he was not a fugitive.  He adds that he was forced into signing a release agreement.  He is now suing for unspecified damages -- alleging the show ruined his reputation, caused him damages and cost him his job.
