Shaddai “Shadman” Prejean was recently arrested for assaulting someone with a ‘deadly weapon’. According to some tweets put out on November 12, the Swiss YouTuber (also known as Shadbase) was arrested near Glendale, Los Angeles.

The YouTube artist has been under constant controversy since he joined the platform in 2008. Shadman was known for posting videos featuring his work, which included vulgar and NSFW artworks.
Shadman specialized in drawing s**ually explicit content with his graphic tablet, including p***ographic illustrations and digital comics. He primarily worked on Loli (aka Lolicon, based on Japanese anime and manga, these feature a childlike female character drawn within inappropriate scenarios) artworks.
However, details of the alleged attack have not yet been revealed by police and official records.
Twitter user Kiki Farms has also posted a document that appears to indicate that Shadman has been arrested.
The user writes: “Shadman was arrested in Los Angeles for an assault with “Deаdly Weаpon,” he added, “goodbye, goodbye, goodbye.”
According to Source, YouTuber’s hearing date is set to November 19th.
Lolis are borderline illegal, depending on their illustration. They fall in the gray area where they can often be classified as ‘child p**n’. Shadman has become a controversial figure on YouTube and other social media platforms because of the risque nature of his artwork.
These types of artwork saw several people label him as an alleged pedophile on social media.
In 2019, the 31-year-old announced that he would stop posting his Loli and other NSFW artworks online. Back then, he had cited the rising backlash that his content generates as his reason for discontinuing.
Shadman has become notorious online for his pornographic arts and webcomics.
Little is known about the character, but he is said to have been born in Switzerland. Before moving to the United States, he was reportedly expelled from art school and called a “social threat.”
Controversial figures are constantly filmed online with masks and faces, and have earned a reputation for illustrations of characters like Lori and Elastigirl.
A website called Technotrenz alleged Shadman to have drawn artwork based on real underaged girls. They also claimed that he had made 34 artworks based on his mother.
Four years ago, Shadman was reported to have drawn then 12-year-old Logan star Dafne Keen inappropriately, leading to her lawyers temporarily shutting down his website.
During the 2016 election campaign, Shadman was reportedly requested by a social media follower to draw YouTuber Keemstar’s underage daughter inappropriately with former US President Trump. Following this, Keemstar allegedly threatened to call authorities.
Lori is a type of Japanese manga or anime that uses sexually explicit and underage cartoon characters.
Shadman launched his website Shadbase in 2009 and launched a YouTube channel the following year.
However, in 2019 he announced that he would stop drawing pornographic art with Lori because of the controversy it was receiving.
