Federal officials in Chicago said today a self-proclaimed leader of a street gang that allegedly uses violence to control punk rock music clubs in major U.S. cities was charged with extorting $5,000 from "a popular recording artist from the Chicago area."

Elgin Nathan James, who has been the subject of television documentaries, was arrested in Los Angeles this morning, the U.S. attorney's office in Chicago said. The charges against James were unsealed in federal court in Chicago.

Authorities allege James started the FSU street gang in Boston the 1990s to establish control over the punk rock scene there.

The alleged extortion took place when the undisclosed victim's band was on tour in 2005 and 2006, prosecutors said. It was an outgrowth of a dispute the victim had with a member of another band who also belonged to FSU, authorities said.

The victim was attacked in Boston and was told he could stop further attacks by making a $5,000 "donation" to FSU, prosecutors said.

James is scheduled to appear in court today in Los Angeles, according to the U.S. attorney's office.

From Wikipedia: "To date there have been FSU chapters in Boston, New York, Philadelphia, New Jersey, Chicago, Dallas, Portland Maine, Seattle, and Los Angeles."

no mention of San Diego, so how "punk rock" could this gang be really?

I'm not sure that FSU is straight edge. The people I knew that associated with them definitely weren't. They called the music they were into "hatecore" which is something I never really understood. Basically, they were pretty easy to avoid and I never really saw any issues at shows. I think they had their own thing going on.

I heard some horrible stories of shit they have done to people it's impossible for me know if they are all true or not but I wouldn't be surprised.

People need to stop with this tough guy gangster bullshit.

i will tell my primo FSU story: these guys came down from Boston to CT about 10 years ago to come to a Earth Crisis show. a bunch of other bands were playing which were far better and thus i was there, but that's irrelevant. These FSU dudes show up and were some pretty big muscular motherfuckers. it looked like some sort of hybrid football/basketball team showed up, it was weird as hell. well they proceeded to go crazy and just start beating on people in the pit. one dude named riki who was a puerto rican i think (keep that in mind, considering FSU's supposed racial equality tagline) who was just doing his thing trying to keep the peace. he very politely tried to motion for the dudes to chill out and they jumped on him. he didn't twist his face, curse, spit, or act threatening. he made the universal hand sign to "chill brodawg". a couple of us jumped in but they had already shattered his jaw and knocked him out. and the dudes immediately fled, got in their car, and drove back to Mass. some tough guys. this was par for the course, not an isolated incident, plenty of people will tell you that this happened all the time.
so these fucksticks can spare me their whole high minded political bologna.

All the FSU kids I knew were straightedge. It was a big reason why they got into fights. If drunk dudes showed up to a hxc show and acted like a drunk douche (in their opinion) they'd get beat.

The dvd is called Boston Beatdowns or something.

I saw that Boston Beat down dvd when I was living in Boston. Atrocious. Embarrassing. Really hard to watch, like videos of german strippers eating shit out of each others asses. It's certainly no surprise that the majority of the mooks in FSU have grown bored with the straight edge lifestyle and have since moved on to healthier, more respectable lifestyles as cocaine users and dealers. True till death indeed.
