Ex-BitBoy Ben Armstrong was arrested after a live-streamed altercation with his former business partner on X (formerly Twitter).
While live-streaming, Ben Armstrong fearlessly documented his visit to the residence of Carlos Diaz, a prominent non-fungible token investor and advisor known for his affiliations with the Hit Network.
In a tirade, Armstrong accused Diaz of intending “to harm him” and claimed he had ties to the Houston mafia.
“Carlos, I’m not afraid of you,” he shouted

Ben Armstrong Released After 8 Hours
After news of his arrest went public, Armstrong tweeted that he was out, and seemed ‘loitering’ and ‘inducing fear’ wasn’t enough to keep him imprisoned.
This is the hardest tweet I ever have had to make. I need to make a confession I never imagined I would admit
I’m not even really sure if I have the courage to say it but I’m going to do my best
Here it goes: My name is Ben and I’m a loiterer. I did 8 whole hours in the slammer
