Two of ABC's 'Brat Camp' youths facing separate criminal charges
UPI News Service, 08/08/2005
Two of the youths featured on ABC's "Brat Camp" reality series are facing criminal charges for separate incidents.
ABC tracked the progress of nine troubled young people -- including Jada Chabot, 16, and Isaiah Alarcon, 17 -- as they spent 50 days at the SageWalk Wilderness Therapy Camp in Oregon. Filming ended in January and show is airing weekly on Wednesday night.
Although it does not reveal how the participants turned out after the program, at least two have been arrested in recent weeks, E! Online said Monday.
A motorboat being piloted by Chabot in Massachusetts' Lake Pearl plowed into a family of seven last week. One of the victims remains hospitalized with broken ribs. Chabot faces several charges including negligent boating as a result of the accident.
Alarcon was arrested July 29 for painting racial slurs outside the home of a preschool teacher in Winton, Calif., E! said.
Now under house arrest at his mother's home, Alarcon has a hearing Tuesday to determine whether he will stand trial as an adult.
