ONTARIO, CA – A Mexican singer who stars in a Spanish-language TV show has been arrested at a Southern California airport on kidnapping and other charges.
The Los Angeles Times reported Monday that Larry Hernandez was taken into custody Friday at Ontario International Airport on a South Carolina warrant out of Newberry County.
Airport police spokesman Rob Pendregon says Hernandez was arrested on charges of kidnapping and assault and battery as he waited to board a flight to Colorado.
The 38-year-old narco singer stars in “Larrymania,” a reality show on NBC Universo.
The San Bernardino Sun says Hernandez was being held without bail and awaiting extradition to South Carolina.
Efforts to reach a representative for Hernandez were unsuccessful.
