Babudar is well known throughout the Chiefs’ kingdom for his iconic costume, online presence, and sports betting endeavors. He posts endlessly about the Chiefs and is always talking trash about their opponents, which is why it was such a surprise he went silent during last Sunday’s 30-24 overtime win over the Houston Texans.
According to FOX 23, Babudar is accused of robbing the Tulsa Teachers Credit Union. Officers caught the suspect fleeing with cash and a weapon and arrested him around 10:15 a.m. local time.
"We are so very appreciative of the witness [who reported the robbery], the bank employees, and the officers that responded to capture this person,” said Bixby police Chief Todd Blish in a statement. “I am especially proud of our officers who were able to respond quickly and set up a perimeter and make the arrest.”
It is unknown if the superfan’s iconic mask was the mask he was wearing during the robbery—however, it is safe to say that that will not impact his case status.
The ChiefsAholic Twitter page has accrued 36.8k followers since it was created in December 2019. Despite registering 15.6k tweets during that time, or an average of roughly 14 tweets per day, the account has been inactive since December 16—last Friday, the day of the robbery. His last tweet was a Chiefs-centered joke made towards a Kansas City-based online influencer.
The Chiefs are not directly involved with the superfan and have not issued a comment on the situation.
