Actor Tom Selleck has shirked California’s restrictions on water use in a pretty deplorable way. The Los Angeles Times reports,

Selleck had truckloads of water from a public hydrant delivered to his sprawling Hidden Valley ranch, according to court documents filed against the veteran actor by a Ventura County water district.. . 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.

Ironically, it was a private detective hired by the county who busted the man most famous for playing a Hawaii-based private eye in Magnum, P.I.

There was little indication what Selleck needed so much water for, but one has to wonder.
