Chiefs fan accused of armed robbery removes ankle monitor, skips court date
Xaviar Babudar, the Kansas City Chiefs superfan who was arrested in December for armed robbery, is in more legal hot water after failing to show up to a court appearance.
A $1-million bond warrant was issued for Babudar after he removed his ankle monitor and was a no-show for his district court arraignment Monday, Jennifer Maupin of 2 News Oklahoma reports. The district attorney's office said it intends to file a felony charge of removing an electronic monitoring device against Babudar.
Known to fans as ChiefsAholic, Babudar regularly attends Chiefs home and road games dressed in a KC Wolf costume. He's accused of robbing a Tulsa Teachers Credit Union bank in Bixby, Oklahoma, on Dec. 16, 2022 while armed with a weapon.
After making bail, Babudar reportedly asked the court for permission to attend a "family vacation" in Phoenix at the same time Super Bowl LVII between the Chiefs and Philadelphia Eagles was taking place in the area.
