ALTAMONTE SPRINGS, Fla. - Altamonte Springs police arrested a former 'American Idol' contestant who they say was involved in a string of computer scams in 2012.

Antonio Wheeler, 26, has been charged on Friday with three counts of grand theft after they say Wheeler would offer to sell victims a discounted Macbook computer in the Apple store and would bring it to the parking lot.

Wheeler would then give them a textbook inside of the box instead, according to police.

Wheeler is also known as "Skiboski" and appeared on 'American Idol.'
