Dixon was sentenced to nine years in prison for stealing a pair of sneakers from someone at gunpoint when he was 16 years old. He was released after a Court of Appeals ruled that sentence too harsh.

Since then, Dixon has been arrested several times, including for allegedly threatening his mom with a steak knife.

He’s charged with petit larceny and criminal possession of a forged instrument.
