Via TMZ:

According to law enforcement, Creepa — real name Thaddeus Chaylon Martin — provided counterfeit U.S. bills to a female associate and had her buy a $145 cell phone at a SuperWalmart in Gainsville.

Once the woman bought the phone, Creepa allegedly took it to a different Wallmart and returned the phone for legitimate bills.

It’s unclear how authorities uncovered the alleged scheme, but when investigators spoke with the woman who purchased the phone … she told cops she had no idea the money was bogus.

According to the report, the woman “became extremely irate with [Creepa] to the point of having to be restrained by [police] to keep her from physically attacking [Creepa].”

Creepa was charged with multiple counts of fraud and was hauled to Alachua County Jail — where he was booked and posed for an angry mug shot.

Pretty shocking allegations for a man who won $100k in 2008 … by proving to Fonzworth Bentley that he was ready to become a “True Gentleman.”

Oh the irony.  I wonder if there was a class on the show regarding NOT pulling money laundering schemes at Wal-Mart?
