Remember That Dude From American Idol SKI BO SKI . . . Who Sang I HEARD IT THROUGH The Grapevine . . . Well He Got Tried To ROB A COUPLE In A Target Parking Lot!!!
November 15, 2012: 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.
