Contrary to previous reports, Taxstone is being held without bail. The Hip-Hop podcaster was arrested on Monday (Jan. 16) for his alleged involvement in the infamous Irving Plaza shooting last May at a T.I. concert.
According to the New York Daily News, a judge ordered Taxstone, born Daryl Campbell, 31, be kept in custody.
The shooting in the concert led to the death of Ronald McPhatter aka Banga, Troy Ave’s childhood friend and bodyguard. In footage, Troy Ave was seen firing shots while a man thought to be Taxstone was seen fleeing.
Both Troy Ave and Taxstone’s DNA was found on the firearm, which was reportedly located by cops in the vehicle that took the former to the hospital to be treated for gunshot wounds to his leg. Although he never said whose it was, the Brooklyn rapper long maintained he took the gun he was seen firing from a gunman after an altercation.
Although a judge had agreed to release Campbell yesterday on $500,000 bond and house arrest, prosecutors today (Jan. 18) convinced Manhattan Federal Judge Lewis Kaplan that he was a risk to the community.
Revolt TV noted that the judge was partially swayed by an eyewitness who came forward to co-sign the prosecution’s case against Taxstone.
So far Campbell hasn’t been charged with murder. Troy Ave, who has been charged with attempted murder, is currently out on $500,ooo bail.
