Just when we thought Troy Ave was just a victim at last week’s Irving Plaza shooting, he was called to appear in court in connection with attempted murder charges after security footage showed him firing some shots – to which he has pleaded not guilty.
Then just when Troy Ave himself thought that a $50,000 bail would be granted due to no previous criminal records, the judge refused and ordered that he be held without bail until the trial.
These new developments happened last night at the Manhattan Criminal Court. A day or so after Meek Mill defended Troy on an Instagram post.
According to the New York Times, the 33-year-old rapper born Roland Collins was charged last night in the Manhattan Criminal Court with charges of attempted murder and criminal possession of a weapon. Collins pleaded not guilty to these charges and asked the judge for $50,000 bail, considering he has no previous criminal record. However, Judge Ushir Pandit-Durant ordered for him to be held without bail until trial.
That night’s incident resulted in the death of Collins’ own bodyguard Ronald McPhatter, and left several more injured—including Collins himself, who showed up to court in a wheelchair due to being shot in the leg. pigeonsandplanes.com
Troy’s lawyers Scott E. Leemon and John Stella claim that he was not responsible for the shots fired. But because of the security footage that surfaced, Detective John Santiago was able to charge him with attempted murder.
