In an unexpected turn of events, Ben Armstrong, once popularly called “BitBoy”, was in police custody while broadcasting live. This shocked many of his followers, who had eagerly tuned in, expecting an ordinary stream.
The Backdrop: An Alleged Lamborghini Heist
Armstrong chose to go live outside a certain ‘special location’, as he had teased on YouTube. This location was the residence of Carlos Diaz, a known consultant and NFT investor. It’s believed Diaz has ties with the Hit Network, a key player in the crypto industry. The bone of contention? A Lamborghini Armstrong insists belongs to him.
Throughout the broadcast, Armstrong’s emotional state was evident. He unleashed a torrent of accusations against Diaz. Most startling was his claim that Diaz, in association with the Houston mafia, intended to end his life. Bravely, or perhaps recklessly, Armstrong declared on stream, “Carlos, I fear you not!”
Police Intervention: A Broadcast Interrupted
A bit into the stream, local law enforcement arrived on the scene. A series of questions followed, including one inquiring if Armstrong was armed. Firmly, he refuted any possession of weapons. Yet, the stream abruptly lost its visual feed, leaving only an audio trail of a dialogue between Armstrong and the officers. Shortly after, the news of Armstrong’s arrest became public.
Gwinnett County, Georgia’s Sheriff’s Office records indicate that a “Benjamin Charles Armstrong” was taken into custody on Sept. 25 at 9:11 pm local time. He remained behind bars at the time of this report.
Adding more intrigue, Diaz later verified that Ben Armstrong confronted him at his dwelling. This confirmation further intensified the already buzzing online chatter.
Within the crypto community, opinions varied. Some, like ZachXBT, an evident critic, found satisfaction, stating, “Seeing one of crypto’s most infamous figures face karma is always a reason for celebration.”
The Downward Spiral of Ben Armstrong
Armstrong’s recent woes aren’t an isolated incident. A month earlier, Hit Network, the entity behind the “BitBoy Crypto“ moniker, severed ties with Armstrong, its public persona. The cited reasons ranged from substance misuse concerns to monetary losses inflicted on staff.
Post this separation, the waters further muddied. A series of lawsuits surfaced and then were subsequently withdrawn by the parties entangled in the saga. In an attempt to fund his legal endeavors, Armstrong even made a public plea for monetary aid on Sept. 20, causing quite a stir.
Ben Armstrong’s dramatic live arrest is a testament to the unpredictable turns the crypto world often takes. With unfolding revelations and mounting legal challenges, only time will tell how this story culminates.
