Chopper, the former star of MTV’s “Making The Band,” has been arrested for sex trafficking, with authorities accusing him of being a pimp.
Chopper was arrested in Maryland earlier this month and will be extradited to Las Vegas to face sex trafficking allegations.
According to fresh legal documents obtained by TMZ, an undercover vice officer posed as a sex worker in Nevada claims that Chopper messaged them on Instagram with an apparent offer to make money through prostitution.
According to the undercover cop, they searched Chopper’s Instagram account and discovered several posts related to prostitution and pimping, including images of him inside a plane with a phone and the caption “Sending em,” with a money bag and crown emoji… including one image of him inside a plane with a phone alongside the caption “Sending em,” with a money bag and crown emoji.
According to the documents, the undercover detective initiated an investigation into Chopper after spotting indications of a possible sex trafficking organization on social media.
Chopper allegedly called the undercover and boasted about his frequent travel and seven residences across the country, including one in Las Vegas, while simultaneously warning the undercover that Sin City was not a safe location to do business since law enforcement was cracking down.
Furthermore, the undercover claims they had a phone chat with Chopper, who promised them that if they passed the test, he would add them to his “team” and “stable.”
Chopper then grew hostile with them over the phone, ordering them around like a sex worker, demanding them to pack their belongings, fly to Charlotte, N.C., and meet him there to join his “stable,” according to the undercover.
The undercover claims they then paused by telling Chopper they were afraid to leave home… with Chopper attempting to verbally compel them to go, becoming enraged and demanding a $2,000 charge.
The undercover believes there was enough evidence to arrest and charge Chopper with felony sex trafficking based on the alleged social media posts, direct messages, phone calls, and money demand.
