According to a Chicago Breaking News Center report, the alleged founder of infamous punk/hardcore gang FSU has been arrested.
Accused of extortion is Elgin Nathan James of Righteous Jams who appeared in the Boston Beatdown DVD series, National Geographic's documentary on Straight Edge and also shot a film Goodnight Moon with Pete Wentz of Fall Out Boy . Authorities allege James started the FSU street gang in Boston the 1990s to establish control over the punk rock scene there.
The alleged extortion took place when an undisclosed band was on tour in 2005 and 2006, prosecutors say. The victim was attacked in Boston and was told he could stop further attacks by making a $5,000 "donation" to FSU, according to the court.
