Even RoboCop has to pay taxes

Authorities say, RoboCop star Miguel Ferrer owes $289,800 in delinquent state and federal taxes.  

Of that amount, the IRS wants $162,972 and filed a lien against Ferrer and his wife on July 1st with the Los Angeles County Recorder of Deeds.
 
The remainder goes to the state of California, which filed a lien on April 15th in Los Angeles, for $126,828.
 
"It is completely in dispute and he's hired representatives to deal with this on his behalf," said Ferrer’s manager Leslie Allan-Rice.   
 
Ferrer, age 54, also starred in “RoboCop: Villains of Old Detroit,” “Crossing Jordan,” and “Twin Peaks.”
 
Ferrer is the son of late singer Rosemary Clooney, and the cousin of George Clooney.  He is currently trying to sell his home, worth $3.8 million.
