Taxstone Posts $500K Bail After Irving Plaza Shooting Arrest

Podcaster Taxstone has posted bail and is on house arrest following his arrest on Monday.

During his court appearance yesterday (January 17), Taxstone’s bail was set at $500,000 with a handful of stipulations that includes house arrest. For his bail, he was required to put up at least $350,000 in cash or property.

Real name Daryl Campbell, was granted bail after Assistant District Attorney Hagan Scotten sought Campbell to not be released.

According to The Associated Press, defense attorney Kenneth Montgomery dismissed Scotten’s remarks and referred to Taxstone as a “smart, well-balanced person” and claimed that his client did not shoot and kill McPhatter.

Upon being arrested this week, Taxstone was struck with a federal weapons possession charge and had not been charged with murder.

Earlier in the week, it was reported that Taxstone’s DNA was believed to be found on “the trigger, hand grip and magazine” of the handgun police retrieved after the Irving Plaza shooting.
