California man charged with perjury in Hollywood execs suit


Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) — New York prosecutors have charged a Los Angeles man with perjury, saying he falsified emails to support his lawsuit against entertainment industry executives. Rovier Carrington was arrested Tuesday in California and released on $15,000 bail after a court appearance. The perjury charge against the 22-year-old came after the collapse of his 2018 Manhattan lawsuit against Viacom and Paramount Pictures executives. His lawsuit alleged he was a victim of sexual offenses, unfair competition, fraud, misappropriation and other misdeeds. A judge dismissed the suit after defendants in the civil action produced proof that emails he had submitted as evidence were fabricated.
