Troy Ave Brings Lawsuit Against Irving Plaza And Live Nation
Roland “Troy Ave” Collins filed a lawsuit against New York’s Irving Plaza and its owner Live Nation today following a May 25th shooting that took place during a T.I. concert. where he was scheduled to perform. The currently out on $500,000 bail hip-hop artist is seeking unspecified damages as well as legal fees.
Charged with attempted murder and criminal possession of a weapon in the incident, Collins is presumably still mourning the shooting death of his friend and bodyguard, Ronald “Edgar” McPhatter. McPhatter was killed during this event.
The 17 page court document was filed this morning and is claiming that Irving Plaza failed to provide adequate security for the venue and that is the reason for the violence that transpire last May.
Here is a copy of the document.
