Troy Ave Released From Jail on $500,000 Bond

  /  07.11.2016

Troy Ave is out on $500,000 bond.

The rapper was released from custody on Monday (Jul. 11), according to the New York Daily News.

Recently, he was charged with attempted murder, weapons possession, and more charges in connection with a deadly shootout at Irving Plaza in May.

Troy’s bodyguard and friend Ronald McPhatter was shot and killed during the incident. Ave denies being responsible for his death, but has not been ruled out as a murder suspect. The Brooklyn rapper was shot during the incident as well, suffering a leg wound that landed him in a wheelchair. His camp believes they can win because they argue he fired a gun in self-defense.

Originally held without bail, Troy is now free with restrictions. He will have to wear an ankle monitor and is not allowed to leave the city, not even to visit his two children in New Jersey. He is also to stay away from concert venues and as a result, he will be unable to perform any music for fans.

District Attorney Joshua Steinglass says Ave hasn’t made the case easier to solve. “What is clear is that the investigation from the outset has been hampered by the defendant who not only fired and removed the weapon from the crime scene, he refused to help in any way [to identify] who killed McPhatter,” he explained.

Troy’s attorney John Stella, however, feels Ave will be free in the end. “We feel that we have a case to present that’s ultimately going to exonerate him and indicate that his actions were justified,” Stella said.

Troy’s bond was secured by his mother’s Brooklyn home. Following his release, he shared the following message on Twitter:
