Jamaican-American singer Sean Kingston is facing 10 charges in Broward County, Florida, following his detainment in California for fraud and theft.

An arrest warrant issued on May 20 led to his arrest on May 23, shortly after a SWAT team raided his South Florida mansion and arrested his mother, Janice Turner.

Kingston, whose real name is Kisean Paul Anderson, and Turner are accused of defrauding several businesses, including a jeweler and a car dealer.

The charges against them include grand theft from a luxury car dealership and defrauding a jeweler for $480,000. Kingston also faces multiple counts of identity fraud, issuing faulty checks, and violating probation.

Turner is facing eight counts but has allegedly posted bail and is no longer in police custody. Kingston, on the other hand, is being held in a San Bernardino County jail without bail and is scheduled for an extradition hearing on Tuesday, where he is expected to be sent back to Florida.

Robert Rosenblatt, Kingston’s attorney, told NBC News, “We were in the process of having him return to Florida after his show. We want him back asap so we can show this is merely a civil case and not criminal. We look forward to challenging this case in court.”

Kingston, best known for his 2007 No. 1 hit “Beautiful Girls” and his collaboration with Justin Bieber on “Eenie Meenie,” has not released music under a major label in over a decade.
