An NFL superfan famous for wearing a full body wolf costume to Kansas City Chiefs games robbed a bank while traveling to Houston to watch his team play the Texans.
The fan, who goes by the nickname ChiefsAholic, whose real name is Xavier Michael Babudar, was noticeably missing from last Sunday’s game versus the Texans after his popular Twitter account went silent. He never quite made it to the game after all.
Mr Babudar was arrested on Friday morning after police responded to an armed robbery at the Tulsa Teachers Credit Union in Bixby, Oklahoma, according to Tulsa County Jail records.
The city is halfway between Kansas City, Missouri, and Houston, Texas.
An eyewitness gave police a description of Mr Babudar and he was arrested with a weapon and a large amount of cash, according to 2News Oklahoma. No one was injured in the incident.
The arrest report says that Mr Babudar was wearing a mask during the robbery, but it was not clear if it was the wolf mask he wears to NFL games.
He is being held on a $200,000 bond.
CONTEXT: Chiefs superfan @ChiefsAholic went AFK for a few days and didn’t tweet at all during the game yesterday which raised concern. After doing some digging, twitter detectives found out that he robbed a bank on his way down to the game this weekend.
