Skiiboski from 'Idol' -- The Many Mug Shots

1/14/2010 4:01 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Skiiboski from last night's "American Idol" is used to being in front of judges -- because the guy has been arrested as many times as DMX ... almost.

TMZ has obtained Antonio "Skiiboski" Wheeler's five mug shots from his arrests in Florida -- which according to Skiiboski's inmate history report from the Orange County Corrections Department, occurred between March of 2005 and December of 2009.

March 2005: Possession of cannabis with intent to distribute, possession of cocaine, escape, and two counts resisting an officer without violence.

November 2005: Ten counts of contempt of court, providing false ID to law enforcement officer, escape during transport, resisting officer without violence, possession of cocaine and battery by detainee in detention facility.

February 2007: Possession of controlled substance of less than 10 grams, providing false ID to law enforcement officer, resisting officer without violence, escape.

August 2008: Violation of probation, driving while license suspended, no registration.

December 2009: Contempt of court.

WOW TMZ, THATS F#$%ED UP! He is not even famous! You could have let him earn a little bit of money before trashing him. Harvey, dude, I have an idea............Let's run background criminal checks on ALL of your employee's who have appeared on camera. Then let's post them online. While were at it let's run credit reports on your staff as well. Didn't think so.

Harvey, i went to bed thinking you were the most interesting and fascinating person on T.V. Tonight I just think your an a$$hole.

Don't get me wrong, this guy is no one I want to be winning American Idol BUT I do believe he did his time and he CERTAINLY doesn't deserve this.

Are you kidding me?    

WTF does this have to do with being racist??? He is in fact black and he DID get arrested a bunch of times. I guess cause he's black we can't acknowledge his record???

"Thanks TMZ for saving us time from listening to this loser again."
Perfectly said "Berta - Pittsburgh"

Nah, Only the Black contestants. You know, it's part of their secret "let's-keep-them-down" agenda.

Why is it racist? If he carries himself like a, thuggish, "gangsta" jackass is it really a huge leap to see if he has a record? If he were white and acted like that I would have thought the same thing.

It's called CONSEQUENCES. Millions of CHILDREN watch that show and it is not in anyone's best interest to have yet another felonious druggie competing. If he is that talented I am sure one of the thuggy rap labels will give him a deal.

To all those claiming TMZ is 'busting' or reporting on him because he's black... I pulled up 40 pages for the tag "American Idol" and checked out the ones TMZ 'busted'. Aside from the small reports they did on ALL the AI contests... here are only A FEW of the ones who TMZ reported had criminal records:

Jessica Langseth,Joanna Pacitti, Emily Wynne-Hughes, Colin Leahy, Amanda Overmyer, and Jessica Sierra.
