There's an unwritten rule for this community that really SHOULD go without saying: Don't make stuff up. Seriously. That's libel. It's totally lame. Anything that gives lawyers a wide opening to kick your butt is pretty lame in my book.
Besides, when you make stuff up, people will work it out eventually. Then you'll wind up looking like a total a-hole.
At the request of blondefoxy(aka "Lucky Coyote"), I removed a post tonight from a person claiming Cherie is wanted by the police. We've verified that this story was untrue, that the badge was completed and that the original poster had been giving the artist a long line of excuses for their inability to pay for the finished badge.
