Hip-hop podcast host Taxstone, real name Daryl Campbell, 31, posted $500,000 bail after pleading not guilty and will be placed on house arrest with restrictions following his arraignment in a Manhattan court on Tuesday (Jan. 17) in connection to the fatal shooting last spring at New York concert venue Irving Plaza, Campbell’s lawyer confirms to Billboard.
Campbell was arrested on Monday on a charge of a criminal possession of a weapon after authorities located what was believed to be his DNA on the gun used in the May 25 shooting at a concert that took place before rapper T.I. performed. The shooting left three injured, including rapper Troy Ave (real name Roland Collins), and one man, Troy Ave’s bodyguard Ronald McPhatter, dead.
Last July, Troy Ave was released on $500,000 bond. The rapper pleaded not guilty after being indicted on attempted murder and criminal weapons possession charges.
A judge placed Campbell on house arrest. He is only allowed to leave his home to record his Tax Season podcast while other work-related trips will require a judge’s approval, his lawyer approved.
Campbell’s lawyer added that the government has appealed the ruling. The appeal will take place on Wednesday.
