Ben Armstrong, better known as Bitboy Crypto in the cryptocurrency world, found himself in a dramatic turn of events as he was arrested while attempting to confront a former business partner. The incident unfolded late on September 25, leaving many in shock.
Armstrong Arrested with Unspecified Charges
The Gwinnett County Sheriff’s Department’s records reveal that Benjamin Charles Armstrong was taken into custody on that fateful night, though the charges against him remain undisclosed. This mysterious arrest has left his followers and the crypto community at large speculating about the reasons behind it.
On the same evening, Armstrong had been streaming his confrontation attempt on X, previously known as Twitter. His goal, according to many speculations from the livestream’s audience, was to reclaim his Lamborghini, adding an element of high stakes to the unfolding drama.
The Dramatic Turn of Events
However, what seemed like a straightforward mission to retrieve his prized possession took a dark and unexpected twist. Excerpts from the livestream shared by viewers on X showcased the moment when law enforcement officers arrived at the scene, escalating the already tense situation.
During questioning by the police, Armstrong made a startling revelation: he possessed a weapon in his vehicle. This revelation only added more mystery and complexity to an already perplexing situation. Armstrong, notably, has not immediately responded to requests for comments on the incident.
This arrest comes mere weeks after Bitboy Crypto, a popular YouTube channel where Armstrong once held the spotlight, decided to dissociate from him. The official statement claimed that this decision was part of an ongoing effort to assist Armstrong in his battle against substance abuse as well as to reconcile the emotional, physical, and financial harm he had allegedly caused to the employees of Hit Network and the Bitboy Crypto community.
