Taxstone Placed on House Arrest After Posting Bail
Hip-hop podcast host Taxstone has posted $500,000 bail after pleading not guilty to charges of possession of a firearm by a felon and receiving a firearm by interstate commerce. Taxstone, born Daryl Campbell, has been placed on house arrest and is only allowed to leave his home to record his podcast Tax Season and for court-approved work-related activities, according to Billboard.
Taxstone, 31, was arrested Monday after authorities found what is believed to be his DNA on the gun used in the Irving Plaza shooting incident that took the life of rapper Troy Ave’s bodyguard Ronald McPhatter. The shooting left three patrons injured, including Troy Ave.
Until last Monday, Troy Ave—born Ronald Collins—was the only person held legally accountable in the fatal shooting. Troy Ave has plead not guilty to attempted murder and criminal weapons possession charges. Troy Ave commented on the incident shortly after in the “Troy Ave Speaks Freestyle.”‘
“Pussy nigga tried to assassinate me / I took the gun from him and turned the tables ’round like a G,” he rapped.
Taxstone is due back in court on February 16, according to Revolt.
