Simon Cowell - Wannabe Singer Arrested After X Factor Audition

An aspiring singer who auditioned for Simon Cowell's reality Tv show The X Factor in New Orleans, Louisiana on Monday (15Apr13) has been arrested after stealing a car shortly after his try out.

Orrion Wilson flew to New Orleans from his home in Florida to participate in the early audition stage of the Tv competition, but he ran out of cash and didn't have the money to cover the trip home. Reports suggest the desperate wannabe jumped into a Pontiac Grand Prix at a nearby gas station and drove off.

The owner of the vehicle reported the car theft to authorities, who located the vehicle and gave chase. Wilson is accused of ramming into a cop car before he was cornered by another officer. Police claim he attempted to flee by foot, but was quickly apprehended.

He has since been charged with six crimes, including theft of a motor vehicle, aggravated assault on a police officer and resisting an officer.

Wilson reportedly told police that "he was anxious to get home because he performed well at The X Factor auditions in New Orleans, and was asked to return next week in New York", according to Detective Daniel Seuzeneau.

Wilson is currently behind bars at the Slidell City Jail and is expected to be transferred to the St. Tammany Parish Jail, where bond will be set.
