MTV’s reality series “From G’s to Gents” was a show that focused on taking troubled males, i.e. ‘gangstas’, and transforming them into gentleman. Apparently the show’s winner doesn’t always remain the gentleman that he’s supposed to be. Creepa, whose real name is Thaddeus Chaylon Martin, was the show’s winner in 2008 but was arrested last week for allegedly masterminding and executing a counterfeit cash scheme in Florida.
According to police, 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.
Details regarding the bust are unclear at this time, 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 taken to an Alachua County Jail. Since his arrest, he has been released after posting $10,000 bond with real cash. Creepa managed to win $100,000 after convincing the show’s host Fonzworth Bentley that he was a “True Gentleman.” Either Fonzworth’s ability to assess one’s change is a bit off or Creepa is a really good actor. Either way, it’s obvious that Creepa is not a gentleman.
