Chopper, former star of MTV’sMaking The Band, has been extradited to Las Vegas on charges of sex trafficking.
According to TMZ, the rapper born Kevin Barnes was arrested in Maryland earlier this month, with authorities claiming that the former reality star was operating as a pimp.
The legal documents state that Chopper reached out via a direct message on Instagram to an undercover police officer posing as a sex worker. Nevada state police claim that the rapper made an offer to the undercover cop on a way to make money through prostitution, which ultimately led to an official investigation. Authorities then searched through Chopper’ social media account and found several posts regarding pimping and the like.
Per the TMZ report, authorities referenced a specific image of the New Orleans rapper sitting on a plane with his caption reading, “Sendin em,” followed by a money bag and crown emoji.
