[August 31, 2010]  GRETNA, La. (AP) -- A Louisiana man who was arrested by Steven Seagal and other sheriff's deputies last year has pleaded guilty to a minor drug charge.

HardwareThirty-year-old Jimmy Sarrio of Marrero admitted Friday that he had a small amount of cocaine when he was arrested in July 2009. He was sentenced to two years probation.

Seagal is a reserve deputy chief with the Jefferson Parish Sheriff's office and stars in the TV series "Steven Seagal: Lawman."

Sarrio originally argued to have the case tossed because Seagal and other deputies had no reason to question him while he was parked on a neighbor's lawn.

Seagal testified in June that deputies thought Sarrio might be in need of help.
