Calif. district accepts Tom Selleck’s settlement offer over alleged water theft.

A southern California water district voted Wednesday night to accept Tom Selleck’s offer of more than $21,000 to settle a lawsuit accusing the Magnum, PI star of taking water he wasn’t entitled to for his 60-acre ranch. A private investigator had reportedly found that there was a tanker truck with water from a fire hydrant from a neighboring district heading to the ranch. Selleck had been accused of stealing water as far back as 2013, according to Time. “Underpinning these laws is the concept of basic fairness,” said Thomas Slosson, who is president of the Calleguas Municipal Water District, after a vote accepting the $21,000 settlement. “That is, residents and businesses within the district – the rightful users of district water — paid for the construction, maintenance and operation of the public works necessary to meet their water needs, not those of other landowners outside Calleguas’ legal boundaries.”

Calleguas’ general manager, Susan Mulligan, said Wednesday night that didn’t matter because it is illegal to take water outside the district, paid for or otherwise.
