Jesse Ventura was awarded more than $1.8 million on Tuesday, stemming from his defamation lawsuit against the estate of Chris Kyle, the retired Navy SEAL who wrote the bestseller “American Sniper.”

By a vote of 8-2, a jury decided after six days of deliberations that Kyle’s 2012 book defamed the former wrestler and Minnesota governor in a passage that described a 2006 fight in a California bar frequented by naval personnel.

In the book, Kyle said he slugged a guy, whom he later identified in interviews as Ventura, after the man allegedly said the Navy SEALS deserved to “lose a few.”
