Though he made headlines in the early 2000s as one of the ill-fated members of Diddy’s Da Band from MTV’s “Making the Band 2,” Chopper Young City is now making waves for even worse reasons.
Nola.com reports that the New Orleans, Louisiana rapper was recently arrested in Las Vegas, Nevada, and is awaiting extradition on warrants for extortion and unauthorized use of a vehicle.
The charges stem from two unspecified crimes in September 2012.
Chopper was stopped by Las Vegas police after a report of a fight on Tuesday (March 19th) morning. He faces no charges in Vegas, but is being held on a fugitive warrant from Louisiana.
Thus far, neither the New Orleans Police Department nor the District Attorney’s office has made a move to bring the rapper home.
Nola.com reports that despite Chopper’s disappointing career, he does have 3 million profile views on MySpace.
