California Water District OKs Tom Selleck's Settlement Offer

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, P.I." star of taking water he wasn't entitled to for his 60-acre ranch.
The vote, taken during a closed session, was 3-0 with two members of the Calleguas Municipal Water District's board of directors absent.
The district, which provides water to Simi Valley, Thousand Oaks and several other Ventura County cities, sued Selleck and his wife earlier this month after officials said a private investigator discovered a tanker truck bound for their ranch was regularly filling up at a Calleguas fire hydrant.
The board's acting president, Thomas Slosson, said state and local law prohibits taking water outside a district's boundaries.
The ranch, in nearby Westlake Village, is just outside the Calleguas area.
