'Wardens' TV show cited for filming without permit

Posted:

HELENA, Mont. (AP) -- For the second time in three years, the producers of the cable TV show "Wardens" have been cited for filming on U.S. Forest Service land in Montana without a permit.

The Independent Record reports a federal court summons has been issued for Mitch Petrie, the head of Minnesota-based Muddy Boot Productions, on the misdemeanor charge.

Petrie said his attorneys are working with federal officials on the matter.

Charging documents allege a representative of Muddy Boot Productions contacted the U.S. Forest Service on June 19 to request a permit to film on multiple forests in Montana during 2013. However, the permit was rejected after officials learned the company had filmed on forest lands on five different occasions between Jan. 1 and June 24.

The company received a similar citation in 2011 and was fined $1,000.
