Chikezie Pleads No Contest in ID Theft Case

Chickezie Eze pled no contest today to misdemeanor identity theft connected to his arrest and charges of grand theft last year, according to TMZ.

“American Idol” alum Chikezie Eze … who was charged with felony identity theft in connection with trying to allegedly buy 2 bottles of ridiculously expensive cologne with a phony credit card … just copped a plea.

Chikezie pled no contest to misdemeanor identity theft.

Chikezie was arrested after allegedly using a bogus credit card to buy 2 bottles of cologne at Neiman Marcus — totaling $1, 289.57.

Under the deal … Chikezie will be placed on 3 years probation and have to perform 45 days of community labor.

Since the case didn’t go to trial, I guess we’ll never know what really happened. Seriously, Chikezie–what were you thinking?
