About five months ago, accused wife killer Drew Peterson joked that his "cuddling abilities" had been taken away in jail. Now he's suing over a line of credit that's been taken from him, as well.
The former Bolingbrook cop wanted to use part of the $220,000 credit line to pay for part of his bond, his attorneys and to hire expert witnesses, the Chicago Sun-Times reported Tuesday.
According to the lawsuit, JPMorgan Chase cited "imprisonment" as the reason for the freeze.
Peterson says the bank violated the truth-in-lending act and violated the Illinois Consumer Fraud and Deceptive Business Practices act. He also says that with his nearly $109,000 per year income, which includes $2,758 in monthly Social Security benefits and his $6,000-a-month police pension, his financial situation has improved since 2005.
