Ithaca, N.Y. - FBI agents arrested a 62-year-old man in Ithaca, N.Y. for attempting to extort Paula Deen.

Thomas Paculis was taken into custody Friday morning by FBI agents and deputies from the Tomkins County Sheriff’s Office.

Authorities say Paculis threatened to expose “true and damning” information about Deen if she did not pay him $100,000.

Paculis was transported to the Onondaga County Jail and will appear in a Savannah, Georgia court on July 16.

She doesn’t use cream but uses half and half!

Seriously, this poor woman. Wonder if this man is the reason all her troubles started in the first place.

Jeeez! What could possibly be more damning than using the N-word one time more than 30 years ago?

(do I really need the sarc tag?)

Let Ms Deen choose his punishment. Hopefully it will involve butter.

“Authorities say Paculis threatened to expose “true and damning” information about Deen if she did not pay him $100,000.”

Couldn’t the same be said about Sibellius’s strongarm tactics? Isn’t raising money from the people you regulate, in any other form, extortion?

Why aren’t we seeing her do the perp walk?

I think it was a former manager who worked for Paula’a brother’s restaurant. Apparently she quit for some reason and sang high praises about Paula; but almost immediately turned around and sued her. Reason, I think is deep pockets. She wanted 1.25 mil. I don’t know if this man is connected or decided to do this on his own to see if he could get money for himself.
