American Idol alum Chikezie Eze has been arrested and booked on felony identity theft, TVGuide.com has confirmed.
The Season 7 finalist was arrested Thursday night at Neiman Marcus in Beverly Hills after he was accused of identity theft while making a purchase, Sgt. Dennis Lynch of the Beverly Hills Police Department told TVGuide.com.
Eze, 24, was trying to buy two bottles of cologne with a never-before-used credit card when the salesperson flagged it for having something "untrue" on the application, Eze told TMZ. Store security detained him until police arrived shortly before 9:30 p.m. to take him into custody at the Beverly Hills Police Department.
The singer was released early Friday morning after posting $50,000 bail.
"I haven't done anything wrong myself and I'm pretty confident nothing is going to happen," he told TMZ.
His next court date is March 1.
