Last year there was a seriously scary situation that involved Taxstone, Troy Ave, and his bodyguard. There was a big altercation and shots ended up being fired. Troy Ave’s bodyguard lost his life, and people wanted to get to the bottom of things. Over a year later the case is still open, and both Troy Ave and Taxstone are suspects in the situation. We’ll have to wait to see what unfolds from the new information we have.
Taxstone is currently dealing with a legal battle that is dealing with an incident that’s over a year old. The radio and podcast personality was arrested back in January for numerous things related to the May 2016 Irving Plaza shooting.
The Tax Season host, Daryl “Taxstone” Campbell had his court hearing on Thursday where firearm possession was the topic, and he even admitted to getting a firearm in an interstate commerce connected to the shooting in New York City a year ago.
The Manhattan Attorney’s office didn’t charge Taxstone with the murder; however, they do think that he was the one who brougth the gun into the plaza and fired the shot that ended up killing Ronald McPhatter, Troy Ave’s bodyguard.
The team also had some DNA work done, and they said that the 31-year-old Taxstone’s DNA was indeed found on the gun that fired the shots that left McPhatter dead.
If he gets convicted of the charges, which we think he will, he will be facing up to 20 years in prison.
Strangely enough the prosecutors said that not only Taxstone’s, but also Troy Ave’s DNA, was found on the murder weapon. The Manhattan District Attorney’s Office previously charged Troy Ave with attempted murder for being involved with the shooting, but Troy claimed that it was all him acting in self-defense.
