Monday (Jan. 16), podcast personality Taxstone was arrested by police in Brooklyn in relation to the shooting that took place back in May 2016 at the Irving Plaza, that left Troy Ave’s bodyguard Ronald “Banga” McPhatter dead. Before then, no arrests were made in the following months.
Taxstone (born Darryl Campbell) was arrested this morning as he was wanted for a federal warrant that charged him with being a felon in possession of a firearm, but also being wanted by the NYPD in connection to the Irving Plaza shooting.
Following the shooting, Troy Ave was arraigned on charges including attempted murder after footage showed him shooting back at somebody in Irving Plaza. He and his lawyers have since maintained his innocence, claiming self defense. They have also filed a lawsuit against Irving Plaza and Live Nation for faulty security.
