A Kansas City Chiefs superfan by the name of Xaviar Babudar, who is charged with robbery in Oklahoma, removed his ankle monitor over the weekend and is now on the run.
He was scheduled to appear in court, and after failing to do so, a $1 million bond warrant was issued, according to the Tulsa County District Attorney’s Office.
The 28-year-old Babudar was supposed to be in court for an arraignment hearing Monday. He was placed under arrest Dec. 16 after allegedly robbing a Tulsa Teachers Credit Union (which is technically a bank) located in Bixby, Oklahoma.
Babudar was charged with robbery with a dangerous weapon and assault while masked or disguised. He was released in February on bond after pleading not guilty.

Michael Lloyd, Babudar’s bail bondsman, said that he got a notification Saturday that the ankle monitor was removed without authorization. Lloyd told ESPN that Babudar was not at the Tulsa hotel where he had been staying when he went there.
The ankle monitor was cut off and found in the woods, according to a court affidavit. Bebudar hasn’t responded to any attempts to contact him. (RELATED: Navy SEALs Could Literally Waterboard Bill Belichick, And He Wouldn’t Crack)
The DA has filed an additional charge of removing an electronic monitoring device and issued a fresh arrest warrant, according to the affidavit. Lloyd is currently in Missouri searching for Babudar.
“He needs to call me because I can help him,” Lloyd said. “Everybody and their mother are looking for him.”
