Seems rapper Tay-K can't stay out of trouble. Despite being locked up in Tarrant County, Lon Evans Correctional Center for over a year, Tay-K keeps getting in trouble.

According to reports, Tay-K, currently a teenager, was allegedly caught with a cell phone last month, which is a felony according to the law.

Sheriffs officials reportedly said that after the cell phone was discovered, Tay-K attempted to flush it down a toilet before fighting with one of the guards.

The deputy felt some kind of contraband near "Tay-K's groin region", which turned out to be the phone and charged stuffed into a white sock.


“They asked him to remove it,” Chief of Staff for the Tarrant County Sheriff’s Office David McClelland said. “That’s when he attempted to throw it into the toilet to destroy the phone. When they tried to take the phone away from him, he got a little angry and got into an altercation with one of our jailers.”

Prosecutors added a third-degree felony charge of possessing a prohibited item, and are expected to present their case soon.

Tay-K is charged in the 2016 death of 21-year-old Ethan Walker, who was killed during a home invasion in Mansfield, Texas. While on house arrest, he cut off his ankle monitor and fled his home.

During his time as a fugitive, the now 18-year-old was identified as a suspect in another murder and accused of assaulting a 65-year-old man. He was apprehended in Elizabeth, New Jersey on June 30.

Tay-K was charged with two counts of capital murder and aggravated robbery.

A shame that a promising career was brought so low.
