According to The National Enquirer, American Idol finalist, Curtis Finch Jr., has a prior arrest record.

According to the National Enquirer, the singer reportedly stole a $1,500 Macbook laptop from a fellow choir student in St. Louis, Missouri, and attempted to re-sell the computer to another classmate. That person ended up turning him in, and Curtis Finch Jr. was arrested on December 9, 2010.

When the case went to court, the American Idol 2013 contestant reportedly copped a guilty plea to the crime, paying $1,800 plus the cost of appearing in court. This was his first and only arrest, according to our criminal background check.

Didn’t we know this already? This sounds vaguely familiar. Also, I’m sure Curtis informed Idol producers. Hell, they may have even leaked this cute little item. I don’t see this situation causing much of an uproar.
