Chiefs superfan ‘is on the run after removing ankle monitor in bank robbery case’
Chiefs superfan, who dressed as a wolf at games and is dubbed ‘Chiefsaholic’, ‘is on the run with a $1million bond warrant issued after removing his ankle monitor in bank robbery case’
A Kansas City Chiefs superfan, known for wearing a wolf costume at games, is said to be on the lam with a $1million bond warrant out for his arrest in connection to a bank robbery in Oklahoma last year.
Xaviar Badbudar, who also goes by ‘ChiefsAholic’ on social media, was due in the District Court for Tulsa County on Monday for an arraignment hearing, according to court records obtained by KJRH, but reportedly failed to show up.
The 28-year-old reportedly also took off his ankle monitor, which was eventually found in a field near Woodland Hills Mall in Tulsa. Prosecutors plan to add a felony charge for the violation.
Xaviar Babudar – a Kansas City Chiefs superfan – was arrested for armed robbery in December

Babudar is accused of robbing a TTCU bank at gunpoint in Bixby on December 16. The town is roughly a half-hour drive from Tulsa and is located south of Oklahoma’s second largest city.
What’s more is that Babudar’s attorney, Tracey Tiernan, told ESPN that she hasn’t spoken to her client in over a week.
‘I have reached out to him and am waiting to hear back from him,’ Tiernan said. ‘I don’t know the circumstances of why [the ankle monitor] was removed and how it was removed.’
Babudar is recognized by Chiefs fans as ‘@ChiefsAholic’ across all of his social media profiles
Babudar’s bail bondsman, Michael Lloyd, told ESPN that he received a notification Saturday evening that the ankle monitor had been removed without authorization. He added that when he went to the Tulsa hotel where Babudar had been staying, he was not there.
‘He needs to call me because I can help him,’ Lloyd said. ‘Everybody and their mother are looking for him.’
According to The New York Post, it’s been largely assumed that Babudar’s only way of making bail was due to gambling money earned from bets on Patrick Mahomes to win MVP and the Chiefs to win the Super Bowl against the Philadelphia Eagles.
The Chiefs superfan is thought to have won roughly $100,000 from those two outcomes, according to bet slips that Babudar posted on Twitter, himself.
The account he used at the time no longer exists today.
Babudar was released from jail shortly after the Super Bowl and shared a celebratory video of himself overlapping Brooklyn rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine in the clip for one of his hits — ‘GOOBA.’
Payton Garcia, the bank teller who was allegedly held at gunpoint by Babudar in the robbery from three months ago, previously voiced her concerns regarding his bail release.
‘I’m shocked that the district attorney and judges allowed this criminal out on bail after robbing a bank,’ Garcia said in a statement, released by her attorney Frank Frasier. ‘That day changed my life. I have never feared for my life like that before.’
‘I can’t believe he was allowed to make bail. I’m concerned for my safety and the safety of my family knowing he’s out of jail.’
