Johnson, who also played Nash Bridges in the eponymous show, made the filing to secure his home after Los Angeles-based City National Bank filed papers against him in March asking a judge to auction his home to recoup $930,000 (£524,000), the BBC reported.

Creditors looking to reclaim money from Johnson include a hospital, a grocery story, a law firm and an energy business.

Last year Johnson went on CNN’s Larry King Live to deny reports made by a German newspaper that he was laundering money.
