Podcast and Twitter personality Taxstone has been arrested in connection to the Troy Ave shooting incident that took place in May 2016. The shooting left Troy Ave’s bodyguard Banga dead and injured several others including Troy Ave. Troy Ave was eventually released on bond as NYPD looked for another shooter they claimed was involved.
On Monday sources connected to the NYPD told NBC 4 that U.S. Marshals New York, New Jersey Regional Fugitive Task Force and NYPD arrested Tax in Brooklyn without incident. Tax has been charged on a “federal warrant charging him with being a felon in possession of firearm and was also being sought by the NYPD in relation to the Irving Plaza shooting.”
