Chiefs super fan Xaviar Babudar pleads guilty to bank robbery spree

Chief Sahorik, an NFL superfan, pleaded guilty Wednesday to three charges in federal court for his involvement in multiple bank robberies in seven states from 2022 to 2023.

Xavier Babder, known for wearing a gray wolf suit to Chiefs games at home and on the road, has pleaded guilty to charges of money laundering, transporting stolen property across state lines and bank robbery. A sentencing hearing is scheduled for May.

“The defendant attempted to conceal hundreds of thousands of dollars in stolen cash by gambling online and in casinos, but the odds caught up with him.” Moore said in the release.. “Today’s conviction will hold him accountable for the full scope of his criminal conduct, including flight from justice.”

As part of the plea agreement, Babder will have to pay $532,675 in restitution to the victim’s financial institution and will also forfeit an autographed painting of Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes.

Babdahl was accused of pointing a black handgun at a bank teller in December 2022 and fleeing with $150,000, and he pleaded not guilty in November to robbing the Tulsa Teachers Credit Union in Bixby, Oklahoma.

Babdar was arrested in December 2022 and detained until February 2023, after which he was released on bail.

He removed his ankle monitor and was on the run for about four months before being arrested by the FBI in California, leading to Wednesday’s plea.
