LOS ANGELES, Calif. (CNN) - Former Panamanian dictator Manual Noriega says a video game damaged his reputation.

According to a lawsuit filed in Los Angeles, the game "Call of Duty - Black Ops 2" has Noriega's likeness and shows him committing numerous crimes.

The 80-year-old Noriega is serving out a prison sentence in Panama for drug trafficking and other crimes. He has already served nearly two decades in prison.

There has been no word from the game manufacturer, Activision Blizzard, as of yet.

The popular video game has already earned more than $1 billion in its first few months on the market. Now, Noriega says he's entitled to a portion of that profit.
