New York City Drug Enforcement agents are unhappy with the way they are depicted in Denzel Washington's new movie, "American Gangster," and now one of them is threatening legal action against Universal for what he claims are "false and defamatory statements."
TMZ has obtained a cease and desist letter sent by Dominic Amorosa, attorney for Gregory Korniloff, to the General Counsel of NBC Universal, and cc'd to the President of the studio.
NBC Universal did not respond to requests for comment.
Korniloff was the case agent for the DEA and "personally participated in the search of Lucas' house ... and the arrest of Lucas on that same day." Korniloff's lawyer says the way the movie portrays that search "destroys the reputation of honest and courageous public servants by deliberately misrepresenting the facts."
