Tisk, tisk, sir!
John McTiernan, the director of Die Hard, is in some serious trouble with the law after telling lies to authorities of the FBI regarding a wiretapping case!
McTiernan apparently payed private detective Anthony Pellicano to conduct an illegal wiretap on producer Charles Roven. Pellicano was investigated in 2008, and has already been sentenced to 15 years behind bars. McTiernan is now being slapped with two charges - making false statements to the Federal Bureau of Investigation and perjury for lying to a federal judge - that could land him a year in prison!
His lawyer, however, believes the FBI ambushed him, and states:
"We continue to believe that the charges against him were developed in an unfair way. The FBI should not be in the business of ambushing citizens with surprise phone calls in which they ask 'questions' for which they already know the answers."
Sounds pretty fair to us - especially if he were involved in some illegal bullshiz!
It seems nobody wants to take responsibility for their actions these days!
