After a November 2022 call that was responded to by Otsego County deputies and New York State Police for suspicious activity, an investigation revealed that Hubbard was taking part in drug activity.

He was later turned over to Otsego County deputies in connection with the sealed indictment. Hubbard was arraigned at the Otsego County Court and released on his own recognizance.  Future court dates and appearances have not been released.
