The widow of Dirty Dancing star Patrick Swayze was a juror in the trial of a lawsuit brought against the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office by the family of unarmed civilian Seth Adams, and she became the one dissenting voice that caused a mistrial last week, according to sources familiar with the lawsuit.

Lisa Niemi Swayze, 60, who moved to Boca Raton and married another man in 2014, was among nine jurors selected in February for the one-month federal trial designed to decide whether PBSO Sgt. Michael Custer used excessive force when he gunned down an unarmed civilian in 2012.

While federal jurors are not identified in court papers that are made available to the public, two sources intimate with the trial confirmed that former actress Niemi, who starred in several movies with her most famous late husband including One Last Dance in 2003, was one those hand-picked to serve.

She was one of the few in the jury pool who had not heard of the well-publicized incident, according to one of the sources.

Faith Based Events

After a month of testimony and legal arguments Niemi, who nursed Swayze through his fatal bout of cancer until he passed away in 2009 at age 57, became the one hold-out juror who caused this week’s mistrial.
