A  Louisiana contestant on the popular reality show The Voice has been the victim of an alleged extortion attempt. Cole Vosbury of Shreveport is currently competing on the nationwide televised talent search. Vosbury performed on an episode of The Voice last week and made it through to the knock out round of the program.

According to a report issued by the Caddo Parish Sheriff’s Department, Vosbury was approached by Harold Glen Martin of Texarkana Arkansas to appear at a benefit show. That deal was apparently never finalized. That same report suggests Martin allegedly threatened Vosbury if he did not appear. Those threats escalated with Vosbury’s increased notoriety from his appearance on the TV show.

Mr. Martin has been charged with extortion in relation to the case. This was in response to Martin’s alleged threats to defame Vosbury. A detective with the Caddo Parish Sheriff’s office said there was no actual proof that Martin ever intended to produce a benefit concert. Martin was arrested and charged October 21 in Texarkana.
