Former English and Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge has recently been accused of owing a $30,000 reward to a person in California. Los Angeles Police has issued an arrest warrant against him.

Earlier, Sturridge was summoned to appear at a Los Angeles court over the reward dispute. But as he didn't appear, an arrest warrant has been issued against him.

American rapper Foster Washington, better known as Killa Fame, claims that he returned Sturridge's Pomeranian dog, Lucci. Lucci was reportedly stolen four years ago.

In July 2019, Sturridge had publicly announced a $30,000 reward. As Washington didn't receive the reward, he has taken legal action.

In December 2021, an LA court set a judgment mandating Sturridge to pay Washington $30,000. As Sturridge wasn't present in court last month to answer some questions, an arrest warrant has been issued.

Sturridge finally came with the reply recently. On his social media account, he has clarified that he already paid the reward to the person who found Lucci, and Washington wasn't that person.

Sturridge wrote, "I personally paid a reward to the young boy who found him. He was delighted with reward, as were my family and I to get Lucci home. The person seeking payment is not due any money."

Sturridge also claimed that he was unaware of the court hearing. While he called the legal action a false claim, he is confident to rightfully win this battle quickly.
