Former MTV ‘Making The Band’ star, Chopper has been arrested on felony sex trafficking charges.
According to reports, Kevin Barnes aka Chopper was arrested on April 14 in Annapolis, Maryland. He is now being extradited back to Las Vegas to face six counts of sex trafficking.
Legal documents show an undercover Vice posing as a sex worker had various messages from Barnes offering her to work as a prostitute.
Paperwork also stated that the undercover searched Barnes social media and found various posts regarding pimping and prostitution.
After seeing multiple post that appeared to have Barnes engaging in sex trafficking authorities decided to launch an investigation.
Throughout the investigation the undercover said Barnes would call bragging about money, having multiple homes across the country and taking frequent flights.
He also allegedly told the undercover that he was thinking of relocating out of Vegas because business wasn’t safe.
After several phone calls and Barnes demanding $2000 from the undercover, authorities believed they had enough evidence to make an arrest.
Barnes was ultimately arrested and charged with felony sex trafficking.
Representatives for Barnes have not responded to the allegations.
This investigation remains ongoing.
