Drew Peterson sues bank

October 27, 2009 (CHICAGO) He's accusing the bank of illegally cutting off his $220,000 home equity credit line.

Peterson is charged with killing his third wife Kathleen Savio.

The suit claims Chase violated the truth-in-lending act and breached its contract with Peterson, among other charges. The bank cited "imprisonment" as the cause of the suspension in May 2009.

Peterson wanted to use that money to post part of his bond, pay his attorneys and hire expert witnesses.
