Perennial scumbag Billy Chambers, who at the tender age of 15 made his name by joining two other young teens in savagely beating beloved street performer Edward "The Tuba Man" McMichael to death in the street, is back in jail. And this time he's all grown up.
The Seattle Timesreports that the little punk, now 18, was picked up for armed robbery on Tuesday after a woman said that he and a 17-year-old boy slashed at her with a knife, then pointed a gun at her and robbed her of her BlackBerry phone.
The victim told Seattle police she was in a car with both suspects when they dropped her off at a friend's home in the 500 block of 23rd Avenue South in Seattle. The victim asked one of the suspects for her BlackBerry, but he refused to give it back, the police report said. She tried to take it back, but one of the suspects slashed at her with a knife, cutting the sleeve of her jacket, according to the report.
The other suspect then pointed a handgun at the victim and ordered her out of the car, the report says.
Chambers' arrest comes one month after he was last busted by the cops for causing a disturbance on a #41 bus. When officers came to arrest him, he bragged about how he'd killed the Tuba Man and only had to do 18 months in juvy for the crime.
And only 12 days before that, Chambers had just finished a five-and-a-half month stint in big-boy jail for a separate robbery charge.
