Former reality TV star Chopper Young City who appeared in the Diddy backed MTV series ‘Making the Band 2’ has been arrested on multiple charges. The New Orleans native is currently waiting on a potential extradition to his hometown which would see Las Vegas police hand him over.
Chopper Young City has been charged in New Orleans with simple battery, unauthorized use of a movable and extortion stemming from two separate incidents in 2012. The Da Band member was stopped in Las Vegas following an altercation and although he hasn’t been charged in Nevada, police are holding him on a fugitive warrant.
Las Vegas police apparently informed New Orleans law enforcement that they’d apprehended Chopper, but NOLA police didn’t pass the message on to the D.A. “The police are supposed to inform our office when individuals such as this are arrested. However, they failed to do so in this case,” Assistant District Attorney Christopher Bowman told NOLA.com.
