Choc was arrested on 14 February 2008 on charges of land invasion, robbery, and holding people against their will. On 21 February, supporters of Choc took 19 policemen hostage, demanding his release. After more than 24 hours the hostages were released unharmed, and talks were begun over Choc's release.
