Shemar Moore was in a Los Angeles court yesterday to testify against his former Criminal Minds co-star, Keith Tisdell.

Moore claims that Tisdell owes him approximately $60,000 and demands that his former colleague and friend repay him, E! News can confirm.

The two first became close after they met on the hit CBS show back on season two of Criminal Minds.

According to the Los Angeles Times, Tisdell's attorney paid over $5,000 worth of money orders and Tisdell is set to pay off the remaining amount.

"We became friends…We went into business together," Moore explained to Judge Hayden Zacky yesterday.

Moore started a charity organization to help those who battle Multiple Sclerosis, a disease that plagued his mother. Tisdell was involved in the charity, titled Baby Girl LLC.

According to court documents, Tisdell was arrested in January on suspicion of embezzlement but he subsequently admitted to grand theft.

Moore told the judge that the theft went unnoticed on his part for a long time, however, an audit revealed that cash from Baby Girl LLC was missing.

As a result, Moore confronted Tisdall about the missing money and Tisdell—according to Moore—vehemently denied any wrongdoing.

"In my mind, he wasn't man enough to look me in the eye and fess up. I've done a lot for him because he had me, my friends fooled. I'm not here for money. I'm here because he betrayed a friendship. This is not OK. You don't do this to people."

The two actors reached an agreement at the end of the hearing which stipulated that Tisdell would repay the actor a total of $61,084 in an effort to avoid having to serve any jail time.
