UPDATE – Jan 16, 2019 

Capitol City Produce owner Paul Ferachi bought John Schneider Studios property for $385,000 at a Livingston Parish Sherrif’s Office on Wednesday.

Ferachi said he was willing to work with John Schneider so that the actor could maintain access to his studio.

Schneider’s property was seized earlier this month when the former Dukes of Hazzard star failed to make mortgage payments to First Guaranty Bank.

ORIGINAL STORY – Jan 3, 2019 

The Louisiana actor best known for his role in Dukes of Hazard is facing some trouble. 

The Livingston Parish Sheriff’s Office confirmed Thursday that John Schneider’s property will be seized on behalf of the bank after he failed to pay.

Court records indicate Schneider’s 57-acre tract of land at 16050 Florida Boulevard in Holden was seized in November as the result of a civil lawsuit between the actor and First Guaranty Bank.

We’re told the Sheriff’s department will put the property up for sale on January 16, 2019 and that money will go directly to the bank.

When asked how much he owed on the property, authorities tell us they did not know.
