Arrest warrant is issued for footballer Daniel Sturridge over $30,000 reward allegedly owed to man who found his missing dog in 2019

Written by on October 12, 2023

An arrest warrant has been issued for Daniel Sturridge after he failed to appear in a Los Angeles court over money he allegedly owes to a man who says he found his dog.  The former England striker, 34, publicly offered a reward for the safe return of his pet Pomeranian in July 2019 after revealing it had been stolen from his house in LA.  Foster Washington, an American rapper known as Killa Fame, took credit for reuniting Sturridge with his dog Lucci, but said he did not receive the promised payment, leading him to launch a civil lawsuit.  In December 2021, an LA court ordered Sturridge to pay Washington $30,000 (24,400) following a default judgment, which came after the ex-Liverpool star did not respond to the complaint.  The Sky Sports pundit was called back to court last month for a debtor’s exam, where he was meant to answer questions on his finances.  However, Sturridge did not attend and court documents seen by Mail Sport show he has now been served a bench warrant a summons issued by a judge to arrest a defendant and bring them before court.   A new hearing has been set for November 30. Sturridge posted about the dispute on X, formerly Twitter, following the initial court ruling in December 2021. He wrote: Just to let you know the truth at Christmas. I met a young boy who found my dog and paid him a reward, which he was delighted with, as was I to get my dog back because he was stolen. Other people are trying to benefit for their own personal gain. Thank you to the young boy once again. Im very grateful Lucci is back with our family.   But Washington, who claims he has spent more than $10,000 on legal fees, told Mail Sport. For me, its a point of principle. He promised me the money. Its a substantial amount of money that could change my familys life. He thinks he is above the law. He thinks because hes rich he doesnt have to respond to whats going on. Thats why I had to have the judge issue a warrant so he has to pay the money.  Thomas Scully, Washingtons lawyer, added: A lot of people just decide to ignore lawsuits for whatever reason and a lot of times they get away with it because they dont have any money.  But it doesnt seem that Daniel Sturridge should get away with it. He has the money to pay and he has the money to hire a lawyer. He just doesnt feel like it.  He probably doesnt feel like he is beholden to California courts and so he is probably just going to continue ignoring it.  But I have some other tools in the Californian civil procedure and I am going to keep on trying to pursue with that. This isnt the end of the story. I am certainly not giving up yet.  The post Arrest warrant is issued for footballer Daniel Sturridge over $30,000 reward allegedly owed to man who found his missingdogin2019 appeared first on Linda Ikeji Blog.
