: Former American Idol contestant Antonio 'Skii Bo Ski' Wheeler charged with armed robbery. Antonio Morez Wheeler, 25, is accused of robbing a couple in the parking lot of a Daytona Beach, Florida store at gunpoint.

Bizarrely police say Wheeler was attempting to sell the couple fake computers in the parking lot of a Target store on November 9 but the transaction was only completed when police said Wheeler lifted his shirt and showed his weapon.

Wheeler - who lives in Orlando - called himself "Skii Bo Ski" on the talent show's ninth season in 2010 and belted out "I Heard It Though the Grapevine."

He was given a gold ticket to Hollywood but didn't make it into the final rounds. He was booked into the Volusia County Branch Jail on Tuesday and posted $50,000 bail on charges of armed robbery.
