A new lawsuit alleges that actor Tom Selleck (you know, of mustache fame) has been stealing thousands of gallons of water, literally by the truck load, from a public water hydrant to hydrate his 60-acre ranch in Southern California. 

Selleck is reportedly being sued for re-routing thousands of gallons of water, via truck, amidst a four-year drought that has most Californians--or at least middle and lower class Californians--rationing their H20 use. 

The LA Times reports that, the complaint, filed by the Calleguas Municipal Water District, says, former 'Magnum P.I.' star Tom Selleck is the culprit. And apparently, as cheesy as it sounds, the CMWD says they hired a real P.I. to prove it. The article states that:

"On more than a dozen occasions since 2013, a white truck filled up at a Thousand Oaks hydrant and hauled the water to Selleck’s 60-acre ranch in Westlake Village.

To document the alleged theft, the water district spent nearly $22,000 to hire a private investigator.

Calleguas says the 'Magnum, P.I.' and 'Blue Bloods' star and his wife, Jillie, who is also named in the complaint, are barred from using water from the hydrant because their property is located in a different water district, Hidden Valley Municipal Water District.

Selleck and his wife have lived for nearly three decades at the ranch, which also includes an avocado farm. The complaint comes as California's historic drought drags on and residents are tasked with slashing water use by 25%."

What do you think California policy makers should do to make sure all people in the state abide by water cuts? Is it time to drought shame Tom Selleck? Simply fining them is obviously not working. Just see this article here for proof.
