Chopper Young City aka Kevin Barnes, aka Chopper, is a Rapper. Chopper, the star of Making The Band, is said to have been detained, according to T.M.Z. He was apprehended in Maryland on sex trafficking charges and is being extradited to Las Vegas, according to supposed court records obtained by T.M.Z.
Chopper from Making The Band was detained for sex trafficking earlier this month, with officials alleging that he was a pimp. The former MTV personality allegedly DMed an undercover cop working as a sex worker in Nevada, offering her a method to gain money through prostitution, according to authorities. Authorities searched Chopper’s, alias Young City’s, Instagram account and discovered multiple pimping-related images, including one showing him seated on an aircraft with the remark “Sending em.”
After police discovered evidence of a possible sex trafficking organization on his social media, an inquiry was initiated. Authorities obtained enough evidence from social media posts, direct messages, and phone calls to arrest Chopper and charge him with criminal sex trafficking.
