Taxstone – host of popular podcast ‘Tax Season’ – has been indicted on gun charges in connection with deadly shooting at T.I. concert in Manhattan last May.
According to documents obtained by Bossip, a federal jury found enough evidence to indict Taxstone – real name Daryl Campbell – on charges of being a felon in possession of a firearm, and receiving a gun through interstate commerce.
In 2008, Taxstone plead guilty to attempted robbery, which would have prevented him from having a gun. Federal prosecutors said despite that being true, he still illegally possessed a 9-milimeter Kel-Tec semiautomatic handgun. This is the same gun that was allegedly used in the T.I. concert shooting, which left one man dead and several wounded. Surveillance video shows Taxstone entering the room where the shooting went down and abruptly leaving right after. In addition, his DNA was found all over the gun.
Taxstone has been held without bail in federal custody since the beginning of 2017.
He is not the only public figure connected to the incident. Troy Ave was also accused of shooting up the backstage of the concert and is currently battling attempted murder charges, which he claims to be self-defense.
After Taxstone was arrested, the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office lifted Troy Ave’s bail restrictions, which now allows him to travel for performances and visit his family in New Jersey. Troy Ave’s team declined to comment on Taxstone’s indictment.
It is not looking good for the podcast star. If found guilty, Taxstone faces a maximum of ten years behind bars for each of the two charges.
