On September 25, influencer Ben Armstrong, known from the YouTube channel Bitboy Crypto, was detained by the police for attempting to attack his colleague.
That same evening, Armstrong broadcast live, during which he tried to return his Lamborghini.

The situation worsened when it became clear that the detainee had a pistol. Then the blogger’s business partner had to call the police.
A few weeks ago, the Bitboy Crypto channel team kicked Armstrong out of the project. His partners said it was part of a “long-term effort to help Ben through his substance abuse relapse.”
In addition, representatives of the project noted that their colleague caused them “emotional, physical and financial” harm.
Yesterday, BJ Investment Holdings, the parent company of Hit network, took decisive legal action in removing Ben Armstrong from the company, and specifically the Bitboy Crypto brand. https://t.co/e0kYLKUZ4r

Armstrong is known for his scandalous behavior. Earlier this year, he allegedly harassed a lawyer who filed a lawsuit against him for promoting the bankrupt FTX. The blogger did not appear at the court hearing to go on a cruise.
Recall that in May, NBA star Shaquille O’Neal received a subpoena for advertising FTX. The basketball player was also charged in a separate case for advertising the Astrals NFT collection. The documents allege that the non-fungible tokens were unregistered securities.
