Tom Selleck has been accused of unlawfully taking water from a public hydrant to supply his ranch, the Los Angeles Times reported on Wednesday (July 08). A Ventura County water district filed a complaint against the TV and movie actor, claiming that a truck pulled up to a fire hydrant and filled up on water to deliver to Selleck's ranch more than a dozen times since 2013. The complaint comes as California deals with a devastating drought that has damaged the state's multi-billion dollar agriculture industry. The water district is seeking a court injunction to prevent Selleck from taking water from the hydrant and a reimbursement of the $22,000 they used to hire a private investigator.
