First American Idol Scandal Surfaces
Antonio Wheeler has a history of drug abuse.
American Idol season 9 contestant Antonio Wheeler – otherwise known as “Skiiboski” -may have impressed judges Randy Jackson, Kara DioGuardi and Victoria Beckham with his rendition of a classic Marvin Gaye tune Wednesday evening, but that doesn’t mean they will be smiling for long.
The aspiring singer tried to sue Police Department Officer Peter Linnekamp for “mental suffering, embarrassment” and “severe emotional stress” after he strapped Wheeler to a gurney and repeatedly tasered him in 2006.
Wheeler had told police that he ingested crack cocaine, and when he refused to submit to catherization the officer pulled out a taser gun.
RadarOnline has learned that Wheeler was ordered to undergo a court ordered examination for the purpose of determining mental competency.
This new finding marks the first ever American Idol scandal to come to light. (RadarOnline)
