The Mexican pop star was hunted down in Texas earlier this week, for he stands accused of sexually assaulting a 17-year-old.

Mexican pop star Kalimba has been jailed following allegations he raped a teenage girl last month. The singer, a former member of pop group OV7, stands accused of sexually assaulting a 17 year old at a hotel in Chetumal, Quintana Roo on December 19, 2010.

Kalimba has denied the rape allegations and is expected to appear before a judge to fight the charges later this month.

Kalimba's attorney told the AP that he was in Texas on business and was not trying to flee. The event has spawn a videogame on the internet called "Run Kalimba, Run" which objective is to evade the 32 cops while jumping obstacles by clicking.
