Television tough guy Don Johnson says two former employees tried to put the screws on him.

The "Nash Bridges" star has sued the pair he claims tried to extort $1.5 million by threatening to accuse him of sexual harassment, his attorney said.The suit, filed Monday, also contends the women invaded the actor's privacy by hiring a private investigator to obtain "dirt" from his associates, lawyer Ronald Litz said.

"Basically, Don's position is that he's a victim of a shakedown," Litz said.

Johnson's suit seeks unspecified damages.
