A well-known Kansas City Chiefs superfan who was arrested for bank robbery back in December is hoping to be released early so he can watch his team in the Super Bowl.
As previously noted, Chiefs superfan Xavier Michael Babudar (also known as “ChiefsAholic”), was arrested for bank robbery in Bixby, Oklahoma in December.
Per Sheila Stogsdill of KSNT, bail was set at $200,000 for Babudar, but he’s hoping to have it dropped down to $50,000:
“The Kansas City Superfan, known on social media sites as “ChiefsAholic,” is seeking to have his bail on bank robbery charges substantially reduced releasing him from an Oklahoma jail, just in time for the Super Bowl.
Xavier Michael Babudar, 28, known for his red-hot love for the Kansas City Chiefs, has been cooling off in the Tulsa County jail since December on $200,000 bail.”
Per Stogsdill, Babudar also “has two 2017 Overland Park municipal violations for trespassing, obstructing legal process and failing to have a current car tag.”
The Chiefs will meet the Philadelphia Eagles in Super Bowl at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona on Feb. 12. This marks Kansas City’s third big game appearance in four years, and they’ll aim to win their second Super Bowl championship in the Patrick Mahomes-Andy Reid era.
Kansas City defeated the San Francisco 49ers 31-20 in Super Bowl 54 three years ago. A year later, however, the defending champions were blown out 31-9 by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Super Bowl 54.
After dropping a heartbreaker to the Cincinnati Bengals in last year’s AFC Championship Game, Mahomes and company got revenge by defeating Joe Burrow’s squad 23-20 in the waning seconds of this year’s conference title game.
The Eagles, who also finished as the top seed in their conference, are a 1.5-point favorite to win Super Bowl 57 over Kansas City. Both Mahomes and Jalen Hurts are among the finalists for the 2022 league MVP honors.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
