Holla: Tampa Bay scene staple Charles Easter arrested in South Florida

Charles "Holla" Easter was arrested in Fort Lauderdale on charges of disorderly conduct. WPLG says the 38-year-old — who made quite a name for himself here in the Tampa Bay area — has been arrested in Miami-Dade County 27 times before. It isn't clear what landed him in cuffs this time around, but it is his first arrest in Broward County.

It's important to note that Easter, who is infamous for the "HOLLA!" tattoo on his forehead, may suffer from severe mental illness.

He could be seen on both sides of the bridge strutting confidently in his myriad of bikinis, but doesn't always dress that way. Online videos of him have garnered millions of views. In April, the Tampa Tribune reported that Easter and his wife were expecting a baby. He also divulged that he could clear $1,000 a day on wages and tips from nightclub and party appearances.
